One day away from the world! This pano­ramic tour takes us from Torrentalp—which will access with a bus because the gondola is not yet running—to several hidden alps like Alp Oberu and Alp Galm. On Alp Galm, we will be welcomed to a lunch. The view reaches the most beautiful four-thousand-meter mountains in the Valais alps, deep into the glacier valley of the Rotten, and to nearby colorful alpine meadows.
Around 4 pm, a bus will takes to Leukerbad, where we will collect our luggage.
Literary accompaniment to the hike will be provided by Ariane von Graffenried and Karl Rühmann.
