10 tips for your silver tour (2 days) on the Stoneman Glaciara Hike

Aletsch-Goms
  • The Stoneman Glaciara can be done in three days. Start at 9am at the latest, depending on your performance level and length of day. This way you have enough buffer for breaks – especially at the many highlights and attractions – or if something unforeseen happens.
  • If you have booked an overnight stay, e.g. at a hut: Do you have everything with you that you need for the night?
  • Before you start, take a close look at the route map in your starter pack and read the stage descriptions. Memorize the hazard zones in particular!
  • Check the weather forecast and bring appropriate clothing. Remember, you will be running at an altitude of over 2,000 metres. There it is up to 12° C colder than in the valley in the same weather. Remember: the weather can change quickly in the Alps!
  • Despite the dense signposting, use a GPS device with the current GPS track as a precaution. This way you won't lose any time if you miss a sign.
  • You will receive the latest GPS track with your starter package reservation by e-mail three days prior to your start or on site at the official issuing offices and lodging partners.
  • Take enough water and food with you. Be sure to refill your water reserves whenever possible. Maybe the next water station is temporarily unavailable.
  • Take your time to read the information board at the checkpoints. That way you can relax, pause for a moment and prepare for the next stage.
  • Inform your official issuing office if you return later than planned or have to cancel. You will find the phone number on the route map in your starter package.
  • Take a whistle with you if you're riding alone!
