Scenic Drive · Mountains · Ski Areas
With a strong emphasis on Alpine sports atop 4,000 m (13,123 ft) tall mountains, Valais is home to well-known resort towns and quaint villages. The panoramic views here are dominated by the famous Matterhorn, standing at 4,478 m (14,692 ft). Idyllic hikes through the dense forest, snowshoe trekking along the Alpine landscape, and jovial après-ski gatherings are among the things to do. Catch a glimpse of bubbling mountain streams winding through the many trails on foot or mountain bike, and after your adventures, immerse yourself in a thermal bath with a glass of acclaimed local wine.
