Current situation in Valais

Following the announcement by the Swiss government of the gradual reopening of tourist attractions and facilities, we invite Swiss residents to come to Valais this summer: to relax and find new energy in our magnificent natural landscapes, to do all kinds of outdoor activities, and to enjoy our delicious local produce, wines and cuisine.

Thanks to a relaxation of conditions for travel cancellations, Swiss residents can make the most of the summer with an enjoyable holiday in Valais – still in line with the health measures recommended by the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH). Businesses and organisations in the tourism sector have set up protection measures that are allowing various activities to reopen from this summer.

From now until 31 August, events with up to 1,000 people are permitted.

Borders with all EU countries are also open.

Specific protection measures

Tourist service providers are putting in place specific measures to protect their guests and offer them a pleasant stay in Valais. These cover a variety of sectors including accommodation, restaurants, spas & wellness facilities, meeting venues, public transport (trains, buses and boats) and mountain rides (cable cars, funiculars, chairlifts, etc.).

Numerous special offers and activities have been set up for this summer: 

We kindly ask you to visit the websites of our partners to obtain further information on their conditions of opening.
