We have been in Switzerland for several years, and had not yet made the trip to the Aletsch Glacier. What a sight!
We took the cable car from Bettmeralp to the Bettmerhorn restaurant and the view is breathtaking. There is a lovely path down along the side of the valley, and we saw hardly anyone else. A full trip would be several hours, but we returned to the viewpoint and climbed to the top of the Bettmerhorn. That is another experience. Do NOT try this if you are not fit and make sure you wear strong boots. The "track" is steep, jagged, with minimal handholds and a fall could be very unpleasant. The view from the top of the mountain is not that much more impressive than the view from the platform at the restaurant. You are warned (see the photo)!
The following day we walked from Bettmeralp to the mountain ridge at Biel, and had another view over the glacier. That was a very rewarding and beautiful walk.
Really - you have to see this glacier (before it melts)!!!!
