Reflection classics: Riffelsee & Stellisee

You’ve seen these Matterhorn reflections before if you are on Instagram. Stellisee is one lake on the famous 5-lake walk. Riffelsee is a nice little hike from Riffelalp, and don’t miss the two smaller lakes just below Riffelsee. The best chances for reflections are early mornings.
