Hike Selden > cross glacier > Lötschen Pass > Lötschental; from Bern to Valais cantons. Switzerland, Europe.
Kandersteg is a great base for hiking in Switzerland. For example: an epic hike from Selden in Bern canton traverses Lötsch glacier and Lötschen Pass (German: Lötschenpass, Swiss German: Lötschepass) to neighboring Lötschental in Valais canton; hiking poles recommended. The walk starts with a reserved Postbus ride from Kandersteg to Selden (in Gasterntal / Gasteretal / Gasterental), climbs 1350 meters, descends 925 m, and ends 13 km later at Lauchernalp lift station, which descends to Wiler in Lötschental, to reach Goppenstein via Postbus, back to Kandersteg via train. You can also reverse the route or stay overnight in dorms at Lötschepass hut.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
