Day 1 - 13:00
We meet at the parking lot in Göscheneralp and distribute the gear between members. After a gentle start, the hike becomes slightly steeper as we hike right next to the pristine Göscheneralp lake. It takes us approx. 3 hours until we reach the beginning of the Chelen glacier, which requires us to put our crampons on and rope up for added safety. For 2 further hours we hike up in direction Chelenlücke, looking for a crevasse free and flat place to set up base camp, at around 2900 m height. We cook and enjoy a warming expedition style vegetarian dinner.
We stargaze, enjoy the sounds of the glacier and prepare for sliding into our cozy sleeping bags.
Day 2 - 08:00
Early bird catches the worm! After a recharging breakfast and breathtaking views over the valley we dismantle the base camp and rope up again, steering back in direction Göscheneralp lake. We have a snack break on the sides of the lake and tan a little, if the weather allows. Around 13:00 we should reach the parking lot where it all started, which ends our icy adventure
Non-climbers are very welcome to join the adventure, as there is no climbing involved. As well no previous experience in glacier travelling is necessary.
