Bendolla and Corne de Sorebois

The name Anniviers supposedly stems from the Latin "ad nives" (to the snow).

Crêt du Midi – Rhone Valley and the Alps

The picturesque holiday village of Vercorin is found at the farthest edge of the Val d'Anniviers, on a piece of land jutting out over the Rhone Valley. From the edge of the village a gondola has been running up the Crêt du Midi, the closest peak between Val d'Anniviers and Vallon de Réchy, since 1973.

Sweeping views extend from far into the Val d'Anniviers valley to the glistening white four-thousanders, the Bella Tola on the other valley side, and across the Rhone Valley as far as the Vaud and Bernese Alps.

Chäserrugg – on the Churfirsten range

Since 1934, the Iltios has been easily accessed via Unterwasser by funicular railroad. Today this place is a mid-station and the starting point of an 8-minute ride by aerial cableway up the Chäserrugg.

An almost perpendicular drop of 1800 meters to the shores of the Walensee lake, yet possible hikes over lush meadows with alpine flowers: typical Chäserrugg, one of the Churfirsten seven.

Weissenstein – above blankets of fog

Weissenstein above Solothurn: chairlift, Planet Path, Jura Garden, playground...

Solothurn's local mountain in the first and highest Jura chain is a real hikers' paradise with impressive views into the far distance.
