Your summer in Arolla

Did you know that 150 years ago Arolla was a popular summer vacation destination for mountain lovers? The golden age of Alpine tourism has made its debut here in our Alps! The clean air, the alpine landscapes, the picturesque mountain have seduced writers, artists, or adventurers.

And you, will the mountain be able to seduce you?

The picturesque charm still reigns, the good alpine air is our daily life, and the landscapes are as grandiose as ever. Imagine a mountain setting with the most beautiful peaks of the Valais Alps: Mont-Collon, Aiguille de la Tsa, Pigne d´Arolla. It is in this dream setting that you wake up every summer morning, under the freshness of our pine forest and the songs of birds.


Perched at 2000 m. altitude and easy to reach by car or with the legendary postal bus, the Grand Hotel & Kurhaus and its 150 years of history promise you timeless stays, far from the crowds and close to nature. From June to mid-October, the hiking trails are accessible to everyone. Alpine pastures and mayens, alpine lakes, educational trails …

All your tastes are in our vast nature

Here we will share some of our most beautiful summer hikes!

The Blue Lac

Or if not? Are you more of a sporting or contemplative holiday? No need to choose!

Our sporty guests will follow in the footsteps of the famous explorers of the Alps, will set off to conquer the mountain huts and refuges: vignette hut, Tsa hut … will set off on the trails by mountain bike, take off in the air on a paraglider., will explore in their own way. And to fully experience the adventure, think about mountain guides and guides, they will take you to altitude throughout the summer. Ready for a collective race with Hérens Montagne.

For our contemplative guests, we have concocted a rejuvenating summer program: a forest bath with Rosula, outdoor yoga sessions with Ana and more …

And always “Le Jardin des Arolles”, the most beautiful terrace in the Val d’Hérens, for moments of relaxation, a book in hand, facing Mont-Collon.

The summer will therefore be sporting, contemplative, festive, musical, epicurean, art and culture, tradition, and heritage with events for all.
