Guided tours with slide shows and films take place in the interior of the dam. An aerial cable car takes visitors to the top of the dam, which has a magnificent panoramic view of the Valaisian mountains. A variety of mountain hikes begin here, such as the high altitude Ibex Trail , which was established by the Grande Dixence S.A. in collaboration with Pro Natura Valais.

If you like your scenery big, then do not miss a trip to see the dam! Both the dam and the surrounding 10,000ft peaks will astound you in their magnitude. The photos shown above do not do justice to the scale of the place. The dam itself is massive and it's at least 300ft from the top of the dam down to the lake. We thought that this would be just another day out in Switzerland, but it turned out to be one of the highlights of our whole trip to the country. Afterwards follow the signs to the picture postcard village of Evolene, not far away.
