Fiescheralp - Fiesch
The smallest, yet highest (in altitude) village of the Aletsch Arena is the Fiescheralp; which was formerly known as Kühboden. The rugged nature of the Fiescheralp makes it seem like a remote alpine village, but with the (soon-to-be) public transport hub in Fiesch, the Fiescheralp will be seamlessly connected to a wide array of holiday resorts in Valais, from Andermatt to Zermatt. The new cableway transports 1800 people per hour.
The highest peak of the Aletsch Arena is the Eggishorn. The Fiescheralp – Eggishorn Gondola will carry you to a height of 2927 meters above sealevel, where one can enjoy Valais specialities high above the Aletsch glacier in a cozy hut atmosphere.
At the foot of the Fiescheralp, you find the holiday village of Fiesch. It is the gateway to several worth-seeing area's in Oberwallis. Located northwest of Fiesch is the sunny plateau of the Aletsch Arena. The perfect place for the wintersport fanatic among us. Going northeast of Fiesch, you find skiresort Bellwald - on a mountainridge which divides the Fiescher valley (Fieschertal) and the valley of Obergoms. Towards the southwest, the Rhônevalley leads to Unterwallis; the lower part of Kanton Wallis. From Fiesch, Unterwalliser villages and cities like Zermatt, Saas-Fee, Verbier and Geneve are easily reachable. Owning a home in Fiesch, will give endless opportunities to find the explorer within.
