Walk around the tree line
During this hike, you will gradually descend from just above the tree line to just beneath it. This is a typical winter sports area, with lots of chalets. There are great vistas along the way. You can end your hike sooner in Bettmeralp, by taking the cable car down to the train station of Betten.
You will not see the Aletsch glacier during this hike, but there are several options to break your hike by taking a cable car up to enjoy the great view of this glacier: the Bettmerhorn and Eggishorn are perfect places to do so.
