It took 250 million years for Mother Nature to carve out this incredible canyon!
Sadly the lower glacier no longer exists, but the canyon itself is now thriving as a popular destination for a unique sensory walk through its exposed rock galleries and tunnels. The rushing water cascades freely from the mountains into the Lütschine River below, sometimes causing a sudden rush of wind through the canyon and a rapid temperature flux as rays of light reflect along the steep walls.

Maintaining access to the Glacier Canyon requires ongoing investment. Without these investments it wouldn’t be possible to safely enter inside the canyon.
– At the start of each Spring, we invest CHF 65’000 to clear the canyon walls from loose rocks. Each square meter is checked by local mountain guides hanging off ropes high above the overhanging canyon walls. The process takes several weeks.
– During each year we invest another CHF 40’000 to upgrade the walkway.
Your support helps us open this unique world to the public. Thank you!
