Intro

St-Luc and Chandolin are situated on the sunny eastern slope of the Val d'Anniviers (Eifischtal) and enjoy a majestic panorama. Spectacular scenery, attractive walking country and the ultra-modern astronomical observatory will keep boredom at bay.

Amidst native pine and larch woods, Chandolin nestles securely on the sunny side of the Val d'Anniviers and has retained all its authentic charm. This ancient village with its typical timber houses and situated at an altitude of 1936 m is among the highest, continuously inhabited settlements in Europe.

The neighbouring village of St.Luc still reflects all the past splendour of the Belle Époque in the Val d’Anniviers. The simple guesthouse, built in 1859 on the northern edge of the village of St. Luc, quickly developed into the Grand Hotel Bella Tola & St-Luc and, in 2001, it was voted the Historical Hotel of the Year and received the label "Romantik Hotel".

The ultra-modern François-Xavier Bagnoud astronomical observatory in St. Luc brings the stars up close with its 60-cm telescope, and you can judge the scale of the heavenly bodies along a Planet Trail, which climbs to 2513 m.

Winter

The sunny ski region of St. Luc and Chandolin, with its splendid views, is the biggest in the Val d'Anniviers. A 60-km network of pistes is accessible by chairlifts, rack railway and 10 ski lifts.

Summer

The countryside surrounding St. Luc and Chandolin is a veritable paradise for hikers and mountain bikers. A botanical footpath passes 24 species of orchid as it wends its way to an 860-year-old giant larch tree. During the summer season there is a children’s entertainment programme based on one of the Heidi stories.

A spectacular feature of the landscape near Chandolin is the Illgraben, a gigantic rocky crater (unique in Europe) formed when a mountain collapsed as a result of erosion. It can be reached in one hour on foot from Chandolin. From the precipice you can gaze down into Illgraben crater, which has virtually no vegetation, and across into the Rhone Valley.

Another beautiful footpath leads up to the Hotel Weisshorn at 2337 m, constructed at the beginning of the last century by English entrepreneurs, and finished in 1882. It provides an expansive view across Val d'Anniviers to the Matterhorn.
