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.

NATURAL WONDERS

Wildlife

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.

NEW LANDSCAPES

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.
