Map / Ried Glacier

The Ried Glacier is very nearby.
From Grächen you hike along the Suonen (irrigation channels), which still bring the glacier water to Grächen’s meadows and fields today, on a wonderful forest path and reach the Ried glacier’s tongue in just under one and a half hours. There you enjoy the great atmosphere and can admire the glacial moraines.

The Bodierhütte refuge on the Ried glacier is the starting point for many mountaineers on the Europaweg trail or Monte Rosa Tour.
