An ideal environment
Arolla, in the heart of the Swiss Alps, is the ideal destination for lovers of winter activities: skiing, snowshoe trekking, ice cave visits, dog sledding and winter walks.
At the heart of the easily accessible Val d’Hérens, Arolla is an ideal starting point for conquering the peaks. Thanks to the Grand Hôtel & Kurhaus’s privileged ski-in / ski-out location, you can set off from the hotel’s doorstep for some great ski touring, with access to mountain huts and glaciers amidst vast snow-covered landscapes.
Ski touring, heliskiing, free-ride, ice climbing… dare to be adventurous and book your Arolla Experience.
Arolla, land of rest and contemplation but also and above all, a mecca of ski mountaineering. Surrounded by the peaks, the Grand Hotel & Kurhaus has welcomed since its creation seasoned mountaineers, and sportsmen who seek to gain height. The Val d’Hérens has the chance to host two beautiful races for ski mountaineering enthusiasts: the Patrouille de la Maya, the Patrouille des Aiguilles Rouges and the famous Patrouille des Glaciers.
On the trajectory between Verbier and Zermatt, our hotel is the ideal place to prepare your race, and allows you to go ski-on-foot to climb the peaks and hurtle down the snowy slopes of this valley floor.
