I am going to travel Swiss for a week, and the main purpose of this trip is to see glaciers and glacier lakes in the Alps. I was researching on famous hiking routes to see glaciers, and here is my final three courses.

I am curious which route is best to see glaciers and lakes. I am willing to go all three routes if needed.

Also, is there any other good routes that I miss?

01 Aletsch PanoramawegStage 1, Blatten, Belalp–Bettmeralp

02 Aletsch PanoramawegStage 2, Bettmeralp–Fiesch, Fiescheralp

03 Furka-HöhenwegStage 1, Oberwald–Furkapass

Thank you very much for reading this post!

Feel free to give any advice regarding hiking in the Alps!!

Hi HKiAugust,

I would prefer the second route as it runs parallel to the Aletsch glacier. You can also find it here: www.myswissalps.com/hi king/bettmerhorn-marjelensee-fiescheralp.
