Over 150 mountain huts, operated by the Swiss Alpine Club SAC, invite visitors to enjoy the unique experience of the natural world, extensive hiking tours and romantic overnight stays. The SAC huts offer simple and cozy accommodation for alpinists, climbers, hikers, families and nature lovers against the backdrop of spectacular mountain scenery.
A wonderful waterworld: 100 kilometres of hiking trails run through the sun-drenched Nendaz region along these historic irrigation channels.
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.
