Chalet die Gletscher [“the glaciers”] is a three floor 6-8 bed luxury Swiss ski chalet with spectacular views from all rooms over the mountains and glaciers of the Lötschental Valley – off the Rhone valley - A perfect retreat for Summer or Winter.
The ski-in walk- out self-catering chalet is located in the 2000 metre high mountain village of LAUCHERNALP, three minutes from the first ski lift, shops, bars, and restaurants of the Lauchernalp Ski Field which, because of its height from 2000 metres to 3111 metres has one of the best winter snow covers in the Valais region –Because of the altitude you cannot dirve directly to the chalet in winter you must take a cable car to get to the chalet(3 min ride) there is undercover secure parking at the base of the cable car and your luggage can be transported for you and is ideal for all classes of skiers particularly intermediate and advanced skiers. Built in 2008, Chalet die Gletscher is luxuriously finished and appointed - a blend of traditional chalet design lines and 21st century glazing - fitted with almost every detail - and is surrounded by glacial mountains which are still snow capped during summer and snowed over in winter.
Spectacular Glacier and Mountain views: VILLAGE:
Lauchernalp sits immediately above the town of Wiler; located 3 km from the southern end of the Lötschberg rail tunnel [which also carries car trains] and an hourly post bus from the Goppenstein train station complete an easy air/airport train link from Basel and Bern. Geneva an is a 2 hour drive, or slightly longer by train via Brig, and Zurich is a 3 hour drive.
Chalet die Gletscher is situated opposite the Bietschhorn glacier which sits in the centre of the sitting room and bedroom windows - and the kitchen and dining areas of the salon overlook of the spectacular Langgletscher
The chalet is an excellent base for visiting the UNESCO listed Aletsch glacier from the neighbouring Rhone valley – for which you should allocate an entire day’s visit.
Ideal for summer walking, reading, writing, mountain climbing or just plain relaxing in the sun - the chalet has direct car access in summer via a sealed road from Wiler which is located at the valley base.
Lötschental Tourismus - Accreditation: Our chalet is listed with the Swiss local government tourist authority – Lötschental Tourismus [English, German, French, Italian spoken]- who are also commercial booking agents for the chalet – and whose office is situated in Wiler in the valley just below Lauchernalp village within a 5 minute gondola ride from the chalet.
Lötschental Tourismus make a detailed physical inspection of the chalet and its furniture and fittings before entering into a marketing contract with the chalet owner – and can confirm the identity and bank account details of the chalet owner.
Local Villages: The nearby villages of Ferden, Kippel, Wiler and Blatten with charming narrow streets and ancient medieval twisted wooden houses surround the cable car that links the 2000 meter high Lauchernalp village with the villages in the valley below.
The Lötschental valley is among the most beautiful in the Valais region and is located off the Rhone valley in the Berneser Alps in the UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE Jungfrau – Aletsch – Bietschhorn region. PLEASE NOTE THAT WE DO NOT RENT THE CHALET IN THE MONTHS OF MAY OR NOVEMBER EACH YEAR. THANK YOU.

Car: Not Necessary
SKIING: 33 Kilometres of trails from 3111metres to 2000 metres [Lauchernalp] and down to Wiler at 1375 metres.
At Lauchernalp, due to the altitude, the snow cover is excellent from beginning to end of the season. Skiing is from the summit [3111metres] to Lauchernalp village [2000 metres], and at points inbetween, with over 33 kilometres of trails, suitable for all classes of skiers – particularly intermediate and experienced skiers. There is also a huge area of off-piste terrain available [but get local advice first]. The ski lift infrastructure is excellent – and waiting times for lifts are minimal on most days and times. A weather proof gondola completes the rise to the summit over a small glacier and this run has particularly good skiing. During mid-winter it's possible ski from the summit all the way to the village of Wiler at the bottom of the valley [the cable car base]. See lauchernalp.ch for an interactive map of the ski area and webcams year round.
Other Activities: Lots of reading and relaxing
Golf: There is mini golf in Wiler during summer
