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.
We recommend the spectacular loop trail in the upper Dala Valley leading to the beautiful stone Flüe chapel. It offers the perfect complement to a visit to the beneficial thermal waters. The loop begins at the village square and meanders through the underpass at the Heliopark hotels to the Ringstrasse towards the Folljeret Alp. The path continues across the Majing to Flüealp and crosses the Dala River via a steel bridge to the charming Flüe chapel, built into a cliff. Return along the opposite bank of the Dala River toward Clabinualp and on to the Buljes Restaurant. After quenching your thirst, follow the path to Leukerbad, which is already visible from the restaurant.
