Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday chalet in Lauchernalp - Chalet die Gletscher
3 floor 3 bedroom self catering Ski & Summer chalet.
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 – 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.
