The Valais has a hike for everyone. Up high peaks, through fragrant larch forests, along watercourses, over suspended bridges, by mule paths or vineyard trails. Over 8000 kilometres of signposted hiking paths wait to be explored. Countless high routes and circuits lead through lush alpine meadows, across rushing mountain streams, past deep-blue tarns and up peaks with magnificent views. With a little luck, hikers may encounter marmots, chamois or mountain goats.
Kreuzboden& Amageller adventure trail
The Almagellerhorn adventure trail is the perfect hike for adventurous families, children and the young at heart. The absolute highlight of the adventure trail is a 60-metre-long suspension bridge. This hike leads from Kreuzboden (2400 m) via the first segment of the Alpine Flower Promenade to Triftgrätji. The hike continues above the Grundberg in the wild and romantic Almagellertal (2194) after passing the avalanche repair work. Following an enjoyable break at the Berghotel Almagelleralp, the adventure trail continues around the Almagellerhorn to Furggstalden. Descend from there to Saas-Almagell either by foot or by chairlift.
