Gletsch
The Essential
Recommended
This summer resort is located at the crossroads of the Furka, Grimsel and Conches valley roads, at the bottom of the desolate basin that used to be covered by the glacier terminus of the Rhône Glacier. After Gletsch, the Furka Pass road winds up the mountainside and passes in front of the Hotel Belvédère. The Rhône Glacier (Rhonegletscher), which stands at the same point on the other side of the road (parking), is easily accessible (200m from the road), as long as you are accompanied by a professional guide.
