The Aargletschers, literally "Aare-Glaciers", are a system of glaciers located at the sources of the Aare river in the Bernese Alps, Switzerland.

Grimselsee and Oberaarsee are recent reserve lakes. The "…-Aar-Horns" are summits of more than 3600 metres above sea level, two of them even above 4000 metres.
