A walk to the Britannia Hut is a pilgrimage for me whenever we come to Saas Fee because 51 years ago this summer, this was the first hut I ever visited (and stayed in) and from which I climbed my first 4000Metre Alpine peak – The Allalinhorn.
Since then the hut has been extended and refurbished but the scenery is a constant, although this year, due to late Spring snow, I have never known the approaches to it to be so snowed in this late in the summer season.
80 images taken today and I’ve performed a very quick edit of seven images for this post showing the route from Felskinn (reached by Cable Car from Saas Fee) to the hut, views from the hut, and the descent back down to Plattjen: making an approximate round trip.
The images in the gallery that follow are titled. Click on the first image and then navigate through for the best quality views.
