Hint

Intro

After passing through a gorge of 200 meters depth at the entrance to the valley on a spectacular footpath, the holiday village of Salvan can be reached further up on a sunny plateau, and still a little farther away, Les Marécottes. A cable car provides easy access to the hiking and skiing paradise of La Creusaz.

Winter

The village of Les Marécottes is surrounded by the ski resorts of Chamonix, Verbier, and Portes du Soleil, and is an ideal winter destination for families. Because of its location, the snow is 100% natural, there’s no need for artificial snow. One more reason why the region is so popular with the freeriders. For security reasons it is recommended to go exploring with a guide. A total of 25 km of slopes are available for winter sports.

Non-skiers can choose other sports such as sledging, snowshoe hiking, or swimming in the indoor pool.

Summer

Whether a relaxing walk, a challenging mountain hike or a tour of several days - in Les Marécottes there’s something for everyone’s taste. The Dailley gorge with its spectacular bridges and passages is easily accessible and provides an opportunity for an unforgettable outing for young and old. The Marconi theme trail and the museum of the same name tell the visitors about the history and discovery of wireless communication. One of the great summer attractions is doubtlessly the alpine zoo, where wolves, foxes, lynxes, black bears, wild boars, chamois, and rare birds can be observed, as well as the natural swimming pool of Les Marécottes, a water basin between ledges of granite.
