The Lötschental, valley of valleys, is a must for all fans of unadulterated nature, peace and relaxation. This well-developed valley has successfully retained a traditional mountain atmosphere in which the inhabitants live in harmony with their ancestral heritage of ever-present customs. These include the famous Tschäggättä with their sculpted, grimacing masks that are both beautiful and unsettling. The panorama from this mountain valley is also fabulously incomparable: the Mecca of fans of hiking! Looking on to the “Jungfrau – Aletsch – Bietschhorn” UNESCO world heritage site, the Lauchernalp has much to offer in winter. Whether its skiing, snowboarding, freeriding or hiking that’s your passion, the Lötschental is truly magical.
Activities near Lauchernalp
Lötschental lies embedded in an imposing mountain landscape between the Valaisian and Bernese Alps. The mostly undeveloped valley with its still authentic villages lures visitors to enjoy a vacation in pristine surroundings, far from the large tourism centers.
Even in prehistoric times people wandered through the Lötschental and across the pass of the same name - as attested to by finds from the Bronze Age and the Ice Age. Up until the Middle Ages the Lötsch Pass was an important connection between the Bernese Oberland and Valais.
Even today the Lötschental is the starting point for innumerable mountain tours in a pristine landscape. Two hundred kilometers of hiking trails lead through the valley, which is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Region Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch. Old customs such as the well-known shrovetide tradition "Tschäggätä" have been preserved here. The Lötschental skiing region is located at the Lauchern Alp above Wiler, where a mountain train takes visitors high up to the glacier skiing region.
In winter, the snow-guaranteed, well-developed winter paradise Lauchernalp invites you to linger. The sunny ski resort offers you 55 km slopes up to 3111 m above sea level, and opens up a racy freeride area. Surrounded by the imposing mountain backdrop of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, lies the well with a cable car, two chair lifts, two t-bar-lifts and a glacier cableway accessible skiing area Lauchernalp. The glacier cableway leads up onto the Hockenhorngrat (3111 m, glacier ski area with numerous medium-difficulty pistes and freeride arena), and also provides access to a winter walking trail at over 3000 metres in altitude with a panoramic view of 40 four-thousand-metre mountain summits.
For cross-country skiers and winter hikers there are about 50 km winter hiking trails, as well as 24 km classic and skating trails to explore.
During summer, hikers abound in the Lötschen Valley, an ideal region for those seeking relaxation and natural beauty. The walk from the Lauchernalp across the Lötschenpass into the Bernese Oberland to Kandersteg ranks among the classics of the region. Fafleralp, situated right at the rear of the Lötschental is the starting point of the Lötschental ‘high route’ across south-facing Alpin
