The water melts from our glaciers and after a long journey through layers of granite emerges pure and fresh from our faucets. In the hiking-paradise Rothwald and Rosswald is where the water is traveling through the said layers right now.


In the middle of the Simplon area, Rothwald with the Wasenalp is a perfect haven for guests interested in tours and skiruns. The little ski area is truly a hidden jewel.

Enjoy a rösti, a fondue and other local specialties at the restaurant "Mäderlicka". The friendly meeting place is located at the mountain station of the ski lift at 7200 feet. On your descent down to the Wasenalp we suggest you stop at the local restaurant – the "Wasenalp" is known in the region as the perfect ending place of a guided snowshoe tour through the area with its magnificent larch woods (the highest in Europe!). We are told the fondue there is legendary.
Hike from the Rosswald along the Ganter valley to the Bortel lodge. The renovated lodge welcomes guests through the months of June to October. The hike continues another six hours to the destination Wasenalp.
