Simplon connects Brig in Valais with Domodossola in northern Italy. The Simplon region offers hikers a fantastic mountain panorama and an impressive Alpine flora. The hospice is still led today by the monks of St. Bernhard.
Three mountain passes, a silent valley and ancient irrigation channel on the way across the Simplon Pass to scenic Giw, high above the Vispertal valley.
The high plateau of the Simplon Pass above Brig is the perfect place for snowkiting.
