The Valais is a hiker’s paradise in winter. Its 1000 kilometres of immaculately prepared winter trails invite hikers to leisurely strolls or athletic climbs in an unparalleled setting. With the winter sun as your companion, you can wander through silent snow-covered forests and over magnificent sunny terraces featuring fantastic views. This is as close as you can get to the high peaks and majestic glaciers of the Valais Alps. A steaming cup of schnapps and coffee or hot chocolate welcomes contented hikers in a snug mountain hut at the end of the day.
Spectacular views of the Valais Alps
Take your time and enjoy your sojourn high above the Rhone Valley: the views of the peaks of the Bas Valais are overwhelmingly beautiful. The Ovronnaz spa resort is situated on a sunny terrace and famed for its healing waters. Yet Ovronnaz is great not just for bathing and skiing, but for winter hiking as well. One especially good tour leads to the Buvette of Loutze. You will find the panorama from the top enchanting. And all kinds of Valais specialities are served in the cosy mountain hut at the top – just what you need after a two-hour-long climb.
