    Through the ages... Longest & largest Alpine glacier! The Great Aletsch Glacier in Valais is one of the most beautiful places in Switzerland.
    Ice thickness in the area of origin about 900m deep 🧊
    The origin of the Aletsch Glacier is in the Jungfrau Region at a good 4,000 m, in an area where snow falls almost all year round. Three large firn fields wind their way over the flanks of the Bernese Alps, including the Aletschhorn, Jungfrau and Mönch, down towards Konkordiaplatz, where the huge masses of snow meet and form the Aletsch Glacier. The region around the imposing glacier with the Aletsch Forest has been part of the Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2001. The protected Aletsch Forest is another highlight of the region. It is home to the oldest trees in Switzerland. These are mainly Swiss stone pines that have learned to survive in this challenging climate.
