Canton of Valais:
The background is certainly imposing: From the Rhone glacier to Lake Geneva 47 four-thousand- metre peaks reach up to the Valais skies. Some powder runs are close to 4,000 metres above sea level.
There are paths with panoramic views, cross-country ski trails and toboggan runs down valleys and across hills. In this crystalline landscape, snow-covered woods under brilliant winter-blue skies alternate with age-blackened wooden houses - treasures lovingly tended and preserved. The wide range of winter sports available reflects the variety of this unique stretch of country. Whether you try snow-shoeing in the Obergoms accompanied by huskies, go from a downhill run directly to a thermal bath in an ancient spa, learn to snowboard, conquer 4,000-metre peaks on touring skis or treat yourself to a sociable evening with a glass of cool Fendant wine accompanied by a meal of Raclette cheese at the end of the day - winter in the Valais will never fail to charm you.
Finding, enjoying, understanding. Balmly summer warmth bathes the valley. Water gurgles from pond to pond in pine forests and vineyards.
A cool breeze wafts down from the glaciers. The mountain tops seem closer to reaching the heavens than anything else on earth. The Rhone River is like a blue ribbon, fed by numerous tributaries that emerge from steep valleys. In Goms, the river is wild, in the lower Valais, gentle. It flows past mountain villages of sun-scorched houses, past towns where ancient history and modern impulses combine, past orchards and vineyards, until, well tamed, it enters Lake Geneva. In short, it is a landscape of opposites; of steep rock faces and soaring Alps; of German and French; of northern and Mediterranean flair. It is a region of 4,000 metre peaks, the twelve largest glaciers and a multitude of Alpine passes.
In the heart of Europe, in the Alps, in the foothills of the Mont Blanc, nestles the Saint-Bernard region. The legend of Barry, a mountain resuce dog, remains strong in the Alpine area where the monks and the hospice in which they live carry on a tradition of care and hospitality.
The iconic dog of this region travels over our mountain passes and to this day still gives pleasure to all those he meets along the way.
Like this tradition, the Saint-Bernard region offers varied tourist attractions, in a protected natural environment with magnificent alpine landscapes: the mountains in all their majestic beauty.
A chance to get away from it all in the heart of nature....
