Most people view the Aletsch Glacier from Jungfraujoch, which is understandably both popular and expensive as it is more convenient from Interlaken. According to Lonely Planet, another alternative is to view it from its other side, from Fiesch train station and various lifts and trails. This less touristy option seems very appealing to me.
We will be based in Wengen for a while and I know that it takes close to 3 hours to get there. I am wondering if it is worthwhile to do it in one day. Another option that I have is that I was planning to use that route to go to Locarno to benefit from the Centovali train after or stay in Wengen. Do you know if the train stations of Betten or Fiesch have facilities to store our luggage while we would go to the glacier. Finally, I can't really find if the Berner Oberland Regional Pass or the Swiss Travel Pass would work for the lifts of this area.
I take this opportunity to wish you a very happy 2017. You have an amazing web site that is so useful! Keep up the good work!
Bonne année à toute l'équipe!
