Win a stay in Valais!

Autumn in Valais is a season to be enjoyed with all the senses. After summer, with all its invigorating outdoor activities, and before the onset of winter, with its thrilling snow sports, autumn invites locals and visitors to enjoy the good things in life at a gentler pace. This is the ideal time of year for (re)discovering the region’s beautiful landscapes on foot or by bike, for example. As the forests take on their finest autumn colours, many local delicacies come into season: the perfect occasion to savour the highlights of Valais regional cuisine. Accompanied, of course, by Valais wines: after all, it is at this time, during the grape harvest, that the whole canton turns its attention to the lush vineyards and the exquisite wines they produce.
