A UNIQUE SETTING

An endless stretch of mountains and meadows surrounds the Grand Hotel & Kurhaus. Whether you’re a lonely mountaineer chasing their next challenge, a couple looking for a romantic getaway, or a family looking for a happy medium, there’s bound to be an adventure that suits you.
ADVENTURES ALL YEAR ROUND
Explore your way
The hotel is located at the foot of a vast mountainous complex that offers many opportunities for the practice of winter sports. In spring as in summer, it is possible to explore the peaks of the Val d’Hérens, caves, valleys, meadows and forest on foot or by bike, accompanied or not by one of our experienced local guides. Activities available include hiking and trekking, paragliding, family walks, climbing, mountain biking and many more.
The protected natural environment of the Val d’Hérens includes glaciers, alpine pastures, special geological features, rivers and forests that constitute the ideal habitat for a diverse alpine flora and fauna. Ibex, chamois, marmots, deer, hares, bartavelles and ptarmigans can be found in alpine meadows and ancient forests.
A Swiss tradition
Enjoy hiking throughout the year as well as several themed trails to entertain children and educate them about the natural history of the area. From the Grand Hotel & Kurhaus, easily climb to the nearby alpine pasture, a high mountain pasture crossed by Herens cows. For centuries, our visitors have loved to observe this particular breed of cattle known for its fighting spirit.
