Iltios can be reached by the historic red funicular from Unterwasser. Over the lush pastures of Alp Iltios hike south-east through Espelberg on the famous eastern trail of Chäserrugg. The trail leads you along the eastern side of the mountain to the trench of Alp Plisa. From there you can hike through an impressive karst landscape. Heading about south-east you reach the Rosenboden plateau from where the trail leads to Chäserrugg.
