Hanging on a Rope Above the Gorge Alpine, Saas Fee
Both in summer and winter the rugged gorge between Saas Fee and Saas Grund can nowadays be crossed, and guarantees a truly spectacular show of nature.
For centuries humans only dared to throw awe-struck glances into the depth of Gorge Alpine. Today they swing with delight from wall to wall, stone to stone and promontory to promontory. With ropes, swaying rope bridges and in an airy ride on a chairlift, they cross the gorge dry-footed. If you start out with butterflies in your stomach and trembling knees, you will at the latest scream with delight at the first Tyrolienne ride, delighted because you conquered your own fear, the graviational pull and the force of nature.
Even in winter the Gorge promises Alpine adventure and a spectacular show of nature, as waterfalls freeze to form impressive ice sculptures amid the unique winter wonderland. Incidentally, you can also venture on such a tour by night, nicely rounded up with a tasty and warming fondue.
No previous experience necessary but the lack of vertigo is an absolute precondition, as is good physical condition. Only possible in escorted groups. Possible throughout the year. Even during inclement weather.
How to get there:
