The Fiescheralp at 2212 metres above sea level, also known as “Kühboden” (Cows’ floor), is part of the car-free Aletsch plateau. Despite some modern chalets and hotels, the Fiescheralp is a truly authentic alp. In no time you leave behind the everyday world and truly relax amid stunning peaks and pristine alpine meadows.
Most of all, the Fiescheralp is the Mecca for all paragliders! The ideal thermal lifts even enabled one paraglider to fly from Fiescheralp to Innsbruck in Austria, thus setting a world paragliding record! Paragliders flock to the Fieschalp from all over the world, no wonder that at most times you will see colorful spots in the skies above the Fiescheralp – a colorful and exciting spectacle!
The Fiescheralp is also the home of Swiss ski-champion Daniel Albrecht. It was on the local slopes where he learnt to ski.
A hiking trail leads you from the Fiescheralp to the place called “Märjela” – a mystical spot with one of the most famous glacial lakes, the Märjelen Lake. A scenic must-see!
