With its unspoilt villages, the sunny Upper Valais high valley is famed for its fabulous cross-country ski terrain during the winter, and for its popular hiking trails during the summer.
Framed by mighty 3000-metre peaks, the Goms Valley is the highest of the Rhone valleys and stretches from Lax to Gletsch at the foot of the Rhone Glacier. The peaceful villages contain countless cultural treasures: about 70 Baroque churches and chapels with their slender, white steeples, as well as old wooden houses and sheds tanned by the sun – enough to stir the enthusiasm of anyone interested in local culture. Nature-lovers won’t be able to resist an excursion to the nearby Jungfrau-Aletsch-Bietschhorn UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site, with the impressive Aletsch Glacier.
