On the Europe Route through Switzerland

In five days from Gspon via Saas Fee and Grächen to Zermatt.

The highest and most beautiful peaks of the Swiss Alps can be seen in the impressive mountain panorama on the Europe Route. The Mischabel group, the Weisshorn and of course the world famous Matterhorn compete for the favour of the observer. Only once does the path drop down to the floor of the valley, between Gspon and Zermatt. Otherwise the path snakes it’s way, sometimes in a daring manner along the steep sides of the Saaser and Matter valleys. Places such as Saas Fee, Grächen and Zermatt lie directly on the route. Five days of top class mountain walking.

The Irrigation Channels of Nendaz : The Historic Water Trail

Scorched by the sun and difficult to access, the steep Valais hillsides are often watered using the so-called "suonen", or irrigation channels. Dug into the ground, hanging from rocks or carved from them, they are a constant reminder of the farmers' struggle against drought. Today, picturesque hiking trails follow these historic water channels.

A wonderful waterworld: 100 kilometres of hiking trails run through the sun-drenched Nendaz region along these historic irrigation channels.
