The Swiss Alps region
The Valais region of Switzerland is truly the heart of the Alps - home to the country's highest peaks, extreme mountain terrain and renowned ski resorts such as Zermatt and Verbier. But a visit to the region does not have to mean just skiing, as even in Winter there is plenty to explore for the non-skier.
Hiking, adventures, culture and gastronomy can all be enjoyed in stunning surroundings. 8000km of hiking trails meander across mountains and through forests under a sun which seems to shine forever. The Valais region enjoys 320 days sunshine on average per year and as a result miles and miles of vineyards can be found clinging to the mountain slopes in the Summer. The neighbouring village of Varen has earned itself a reputation as a leader in the production of organic wine.
The Valais region also owns a region which UNESCO has designated as the first alpine heritage area in the world thanks to the Aletsch Glacier, the longest in Europe.
Situated in the heart of the Valais region is the mountain resort of Leukerbad, the largest thermal resort in the Alps.
Leukerbad is situated in the heart of the Alps at a height of 1400m. It is the largest thermal resort in the Alps. Around four million litres of thermal spring water gush out of the rock every day. It flows into whirlpool baths and steam baths, supplies massage showers and saunas, feeds 22 swimming pools and contributes to 250 different wellness treatments. Great for a wellness break or after a long day on the slopes or to relax after a long hike.
A variety of ski lifts take you to a height of 2800m up on The Torrent where there 80km of well-prepared pistes. There are also idyllic cross-country ski trails on the Gemmi pass and 40km of winter walking paths.
Leukerbad boasts over 200km of hiking trails in the Summer, a via-ferrata route that climbs to the Daubenhorn, a magnificent panorama from the Torrent region and a sports centre where guests can enjoy tennis, squash, badminton, table tennis, mini-golf. A round of golf can be organised in the valley at Leuk or in the neighbouring resort of Crans-Montana.
