Alpine Tours

The Bluemlisalp Group offers many interesting alpine tours, for example the normal route to the Bluemlisalphorn (northwest crest via Rothornsattel) as well as the popular North Wall, which attracts many mountaineers in spring and summer.

The Morgenhorn – Weisse Frau – Bluemlisalphorn Traverse is one of the most beautiful routes in the Alps. The normal ascents to the Morgenhorn or the Weisse Frau are also very interesting tours. With fresh snow or glare ice, however, these tours can easily get very dangerous.

Glacier Tours

You experience a safe guided glacier tour by a mountaineer guide. It will take us onto the Bluemlisalp glacier and to the Bluemlisalp sattle, from where we can enjoy a breathtaking view of the icefall of Morgenhorn and the keen insight into Gamchi.

Afterwards, around the „Stock“, passing the north wall of Wyssi Frau, then the northwall of Bluemlisalp, down past the icefall of Bluemlisalp glacier and then back to the Bluemlisalp Hut. Countless picture motives, great views of the surrounding tops and down to the valley are the reward of this tour.
