A challenging but unique hike which takes you from Grengiols via the Saflischpass to Rosswald.
The hike leads from Grengiols to the hamlet of Bächerhäusern and from here along the old sledging run, to the Breithorn mountain. The difference in altitude for this section is 1,200 metres so the ascent is very steep and tiring. You are justly rewarded when you reach the top of the Breithorn as you get a fantastic panoramic view of the region and can marvel at the unique Alpine flora. In July and August, you can admire the strictly protected edelweiss flower. The descent takes you past Furggen, where we recommend you visit the newly renovated Maria zum Schnee chapel.
From Furggen, the hiking route takes you over level or only gently rising paths to the Saflischpass. This is the linking route between the Saflischtal and the Gantertal valleys. After the top of the pass and a gentle descent, you reach Rosswald. From here, you can take the aerial cable car to Ried-Brig and from there the PostBus to Brig or you can also cover the final section on foot.
