We start by taking the Metro Alpine up to the Metro window (3200m.a.s.l.), where we step onto the Hohlaub glacier. Surrounded by the quiet beauty of our mountains, we walk over the snow-covered glacier to the Britannia hut (3030m.a.s.l.) where we will have lunch. Depending on the participants, the guide will extend the tour to the summit of "Klein Allalin" for a view to the Mattmark water reservoir and imposing calving of the glacier. The way back leads you over an easy snow track back to the Felskinn top station. An adventure also for non-climbers.

Britannia hut:
​The hut will be open from beginning of March.
