Glad to see that you are aware of the seasonal issues. Years ago, we used to visit Switzerland in June, and really enjoyed the wild flowers in the meadows at moderate elevations. However, we were often disappointed by snow at high altitudes, and the fact that some mountain transport was not open. Weather was not yet into a stable summer pattern either. We finally settled on September and were rewarded with some beautifully clear days and moderate temperatures most times when we came then.
I have read several posts in this forum about a really nice viewpoint above Kandersteg on the West side of the valley. Perhaps Arno or Maggie will jump in to jog my memory with the name or more details.
Finally, for something that you might not have tried :
Since they installed hourly service on the "Lötschberger" train which makes all the local stops on the Südrampe, it is convenient to fit in a walk of about the length that you mentioned. Not very strenuous, but the variety of the scenery is enjoyable. And, in June it will be warm and not wet. Lots of sun there.

If you stop at the beer garden above Raron, which I have not done for a few years now, don't order the Rösti with onions unless you want a lot of not so well-cooked onions and not so many potatoes.
