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 strict health measures recommended by the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH). Businesses and organisations in the tourism sector are currently developing safety concepts that will allow various activities to reopen from this summer.
