Hikers on the alp of Tracuit, Chalais, summer in Valais, Switzerland

Valais is a land of superlatives.

It is home to the Great Aletsch Glacier, the longest of its kind in the Alps. The Matterhorn is probably the world’s best known and most photographed mountain. The imposing Grande Dixence is the world’s highest gravity dam and, with a history stretching back over 1,500 years, the Abbey of Saint-Maurice is the oldest monastery in the Western world. These superlatives are well worth discovering – alongside many more highlights. Let us inspire you by showing you the many different faces of Valais!
