The Pfyn-Finges Nature Park is home to an amazing variety of landscapes, natural habitats and cultural distinctiveness. The change from glacier to vineyard, wetland to rocky steppe, Alpine hut to castle and German to French makes this nature park in Central Valais singularly attractive.

Pfyn-Finges extends from Gampel to Sierre and from the terraced vineyards near Salgesch to the Bishorn. The nature park’s twelve towns and villages are spread over 279 square kilometers and are situated between 500 meters and 4,153 meters above sea level.

Thanks to its dry climate and hot summers, Central Valais exhibits an extraordinary variety of species – a variety reminiscent of Mediterranean conditions. Besides the climate, diverse dynamic processes influence the natural landscape: debris flow, landslides, fire and, naturally, the wild Rhone River with its landscape of pastures and meadows.

The Nature Park is easily accessible by public transportation and is well known among ornithologists. Besides natural gems such as the Turtmann Valley with the Barrhorn, Switzerland’s highest hiking mountain, or the rocky steppes of Leuk, the Pfyn-Finges Nature Park includes also one of the country’s most important wine growing includes. In addition, it boasts such cultural treasures as the Castle of Leuk, renovated by Mario Botta.
