Intro

The Valais village of Fiesch on the sunny side of the Rhone valley is located in the stepped Upper Goms valley, just at the entrance to the Fiescher valley. This family-friendly resort is the ideal starting point for excursions into the area round the Aletsch Glacier, the Goms Valley, over alpine passes and into the little town of Brig.

Fiesch is situated on a low hill on the sunny side of the valley of the upper Rhone, where it is met by the Fiescher valley. In the old part of the village you can see the typical weathered houses of the Valais. In the heart of the forest on the edge of the village is the well-known "Fiesch Sport and Leisure Centre", offering accommodation for groups, professional and amateur sportsmen and women, and numerous sport and leisure facilities such as an indoor pool, sports halls, outdoor climbing wall etc.

Fiesch is one of the family-friendly Swiss resorts to have been awarded the "Families Welcome" seal of quality.

Winter

Everyone enjoys coming to this winter sports resort because snow is guaranteed. Enjoy the snow on over 104 km of slopes! The Aletsch Arena skiing area offers facilities for beginners, experts and connoisseurs. Beginners' ramps, snow parks, half-pipes and illuminated night runs included. Those looking for bigger challenges can get their own special adrenaline rush on the three freeride slopes at Fiescheralp. By the way, the ski instructors know some super off-piste runs from Eggishorn to and over the Aletsch Glacier. And cross-country ski lovers can reach the wonderful holiday region of Goms with 100 km of prepared cross-country ski runs within a few minutes!

There is also plenty to do if you just like going for walks in the snow. The family-friendly Aletsch plateau offers 72 kilometres of well-maintained winter hiking trails.
