Hello Krister, if you want to take your car this is a possibility: you drive to Kandersteg and put your car on the train to Goppenstein. You can stay in the car, the train will take you in about 15 minutes through the tunnel to Goppenstein, from where you will have to drive to Fafleralp. Here you can park your car. From there you can hike further into the Lötschental, you will hike in the direction of the glacier. Depending on the length of your hike it can be done in one day, but I suggest you leave early. I would certainly recommend this beautiful tour. It's nice to hike your way to the glacier higher up on the left side of the valley, starting directly from the car park, and take your way back through the middle. Especially when the weather is nice you will certainly enjoy it very much!
If you don't want to use your car, you will have to take the train to Goppenstein (about 1,5 hrs. from Interlaken) en then take a PostBus to Faffleralp (about 1/2 hrs.). This option will probably take more time. You will find a time table here
for the PostBus.
