With its unique and diverse landscape, the Valais is a land of contrasts: In the mountains majestic four-thousand-meter-high peaks and fascinating glaciers in the valley along the Rhone – along with sprawling vineyards and unspoilt side valleys.
More than 8,000 kilometers of marked hiking trails lead past bubbling mountain streams, historic irrigation channels and mystical Alpine lakes; spectacular mountain bike trails meander over mountain slopes and through dense forests and soothing thermal baths provide purest relaxation. Even at the peak of summer you can still ski high up in the glacial world above. And the sun makes unique tasting wines along with other amazing natural products such as sweet and tasty fruit and savory spices, as winemakers and Alpine farmers put genuine lifeblood into all they see and do.
