Even in prehistoric times people wandered through the L��tsch Valley and across the pass of the same name - as attested to by finds from the Bronze Age and the Ice Age. Up until the Middle Ages the L��tsch Pass was an important connection between the Bernese Oberland and Valais.

Even today the L��tsch Valley is the starting point for innumerable mountain tours in a pristine landscape. Two hundred kilometers of hiking trails lead through the valley, which is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Region Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch. Old customs such as the well-known shrovetide tradition "Tsch��gg��t��" have been preserved here. The L��tsch Valley skiing region is located at the Lauchern Alp above Wiler, where a mountain train takes visitors high up to the glacier skiing region.

Summer

With its unique mountain-valley views and the most beautiful close-of-valley in the Alps, the L��tschental is one of the most beautiful hiking areas in the Valais. With 200 km of marked hiking trails the L��tschental becomes a paradise for hikers of any fitness level. The refreshing and energizing mountain air in the L��tschental let hiking become an experience of body and mind. Hint: The walk from the Lauchernalp across the L��tschenpass into the Bernese Oberland to Kandersteg ranks among the classics of the region. Fafleralp, situated right at the rear of the L��tschental is the starting point of the L��tschental ���high route��� across south-facing Alpine pastureland through to the Lauchernalp.
