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.
SummerValais and the sun – a true love relationship with 300 days of sunshine a year in the sun-kissed valley. And just as the sun’s rays bathe the wonderful unspoilt countryside with its mountains, meadows, vineyards and trees in a glorious light, you too can recharge your batteries beneath the matchless steel-blue skies of the Valais.
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.
