The car-free village of Bettmeralp which is only accessible by a large-car cableway is located in the immediate vicinity of the impressive Aletsch Glacier, the first Unesco World Heritage Site of the Alps. The family-friendly summer and winter holiday resort boasts almost 300 sunny days a year.
Up until the 14th century there was only one community in the Saas Valley: Saas. Four villages arose out of Saas - of those four Saas Fee, also known as "The Pearl of the Alps", is the most renowned; 13 four thousand meter peaks surround the glacier village, which is located at an altitude of 1800 meters above sea level.
Saas-Balen, the “Pearl of Serenity”, is perfect for hiking, relaxing and enjoying the peace and quiet, while Mother Nature treats you to the most breathtaking views. Time seems to stand still up here - and yet there are plenty of opportunities to recharge your batteries by being active.
