The Allalin Glacier is a six-kilometre-long glacier situated in the Pennine Alps near the Allalinhorn in Valais, Switzerland. This glacier is not to be confused by the nearby Fee Glacier.
Geneva is the closest airport 230 kilometres. If driving take the A1 and A9 Lake Geneva autobahns towards Brig. Saas-Fee is car-free so it must be left at the entrance to the village (electriconically powdered taxis take your luggage). If taking public transport, trains run from Geneva Airport directly to Brig or Visp, then change for the Saas-Fee postbus which runs every half an hour.
