Valais and the sun – a true love affair. Our valley is blessed with 300 days of sunshine every year. While the temperatures down in the valley rise to 30°C, it remains refreshingly cool at a higher altitude. These are ideal conditions for all sporting activities in the great Valais outdoors: whether playing a round of golf on the high plateau, inline skating or cycling along the Rhône, climbing high up on fixed rope routes or riding the bike trails that wind their way down the mountainsides. And visitors curious to get a bird’s-eye view of Valais can do so while paragliding.
