At first glance some of the prices might seem a bit high (around £20-30 for a return trip on one lift), however, there are lots and lots of multi-ticket options which bring the prices right down. For example, if you wanted to use any cable car in the valley, from any of the villages and move between them using any of the interconnecting trains for an entire week, the price works out at about £15 a day.
I think that’s about it - I’m writing this offline so apologies fact-checkers if I’ve remembered any of those wrong. Oh, and there is a type of flea (called a glacier flea) which lives on the ice, eating pollen which is blown onto the glacier. Amazing!
Which brings us kind of to the end of our time at the Aletsch, at least for now. We still have a full day ticket left on our passes which we will plan to use in the next month or so. We’re not planning to get too far away from this part of the Alps, perhaps crossing over the Grimselpass next and maybe following a few other high mountain passes in the subsequent days but, as always, until we get there we never really know.
