Fafleralp walking paradise

Glaciers, wild rivers roaring down into the valley, mountain lakes with crystal-clear water, and verdant Alpine meadows filled with flowers – all this and more awaits you on Fafleralp at the top of the Lötschental Valley. 

The most convenient way onto Fafleralp is with the postbus from Goppenstein. On the way you will pass through the Lötschental villages of Ferden, Kippel, Wiler and Blatten with its virtually unchanged historic centre. The magnificent view of Mt. Bietschhorn is bound to linger in the memory. And those in the mood to do so can enjoy a short walk on Fafleralp.
