Alan Rogers Review

Camping Eggishorn is peacefully situated 400 m. from the village centre. There are 80 pitches for touring on flat grassy ground plus 20 spaces for tents, with some shade and fine views of the surrounding mountain scenery, and there are 100 seasonal units. All have electricity connections (16A Europlugs), many also have water, waste water, TV and radio connections. The site’s restaurant specialises in local cuisine, and other amenities include a small shop and a heated toilet block with special facilities for disabled visitors. In winter this is an important skiing region with a cross-country circuit just 100 m. from the site and downhill skiing on the Fiescheralp.

Five hundred metres distant is the Fiesch-Eggishorn cable car, which conveys passengers to the Eggischorn summit with unparalleled views of the Aletsch glacier (a World Heritage site) and no less than 46 mountain peaks over 4,000 m. Adjacent is a small zoo and fenced duck pond, and lively youngsters will also enjoy the pool, volleyball court and football field. The Glacier Express and local trains pass by the end of the site but they are unobtrusive. There is a dedicated pathway, within walking distance and also suitable for wheelchair users, to the fascinating village of Fiesch.
