|Description||Snowshoe hiking is in. As a health resort that’s in keeping with sporting trends we have set up a snow trail between Bettmeralp and Riederalp for winter 2004/05. The trail is approx. 3 km (1.8 miles) long and has an incline of 200 meters (656 feet). It culminates at Gopplerlücke. Here you can enjoy a fantastic view of the two holiday locations of Bettmeralp and Riederalp and the four-thousand-meter high Valaisian Alps.
From the aerial cable car station at Bettmeralp the new route rises along the Bettmerhorn Lift toward Gopplerlücke. The route continues toward Gollmenegg over a forest rise. The trail passes Gollmenegg via the St. Bernhard Center to Flesch. Via Flesch we climb up toward the Hotel Adler and back to Bettmeralp. Besides the start in Bettmeralp there is a second start in Riederalp.
approx. 2 hours

There you change for Betten (approx. 12 km), and from Betten Station you are carried up gently to Bettmeralp by the large cable-cabin. You can book your luggage through to Bettmeralp! From the station to your hotel or chalet? No problem - in winter by snow cat, in summer by electrobus.
|How to get there by car||From Geneva you drive along Lake Geneva and the Rhone, from Milan over the Simplon pass which is open all year long (or by the car transport Iselle-Brig), from Germany usually via Basel, Berne, Thun, Kandersteg (where you can put your car through the Lötschberg tunnel, every 30 minutes or so), then to Brig, and finally 12 more km to Betten. Or from Zurich district or Lucerne or Gotthard through the Furka tunnel with your car on the train (open all year round) to the Rhone valley and on to Betten. There you can park your car in the multi-storey car park and travel high up to car-free Bettmeralp in the large cable-cabin.|
