Day 1After a welcome from the mountain guide on the Jungfraujoch, it will be time prepare for your two-day tour. A safety/avalanche transceiver briefing will refresh your knowledge in the use of emergency equipment, before you enter this fascinating high-alpine environment. From the Jungfraujoch, you will ski over the wide projecting Jungfraufirn down to the Konkordiaplatz. Against a backdrop of the Mönch, Jungfrau, Aletschhorn, Gross Grünhorn and Fiescherhorn peaks, you will then make your way in a gentle ascent over the Grosser Aletschfirn toward Lötschenlücke. After this, it's just a few more steps to the Hollandia Hut at 3,235 meters, our camp for the evening. (Distance: 6.5 km. Hiking time: 2.5 hours; Ascent: 550 vertical meters).

Day 2After an invigorating breakfast, the group will embark on the ascent over the Äbeniflue Firn to the summit of the Äbeniflue. Around two hours later, you can enjoy the stunning panoramic view from the top of the Äbeniflue at 3,962 meters. After a well-earned rest on the summit, we will start the unique and endlessly long run back down to the Fafleralp at the very back of the Lötschental valley. A fitting reward for your efforts. (Distance: 5 km. Hiking time: 2.5 hours; Ascent: 750 vertical meters).
