A fun destination for all ages, Valais’s wildlife parks are home to domestic, wild and farm animals, with lots of discoveries waiting to be made. You will see cows, goats, ibex, foxes and even black bears living peacefully in their natural environment. While l’Arche des Crétillons and the Aletsch Animal Park are dedicated to farm animals, the zoo at Les Marécottes is home to wild animals, demonstrating the rich diversity of Alpine fauna in Valais.
A visit to Aletsch Zoo is always an experience for animal lovers of all ages. The animal park right next to the valley station of the Fiesch-Eggishorn cable car has been here for more than 30 years. In that time, the family of animals has grown considerably.
Today, visitors to Aletsch Zoo can watch a whole range of pets and wild animals in their natural habitat: from ibexes and marmots to miniature goats, geese, mini pigs, woolly pigs, rabbits, guinea pigs, chickens and doves. Youngsters will particularly love the petting zoo.
