Saas-Fee/Saastal

Thirteen four-thousand-metre peaks encircle the Valais glacier village of Saas-Fee – often also termed the «Pearl of the Alps» – which has retained much of its traditional charm. Even the route to Saas-Fee through the Saas valley with its scarped gorges and mountainsides is an experience in itself. The underground Metro Alpin funicular railway leads right up onto the 3500-metre Mittelallalin with its year-round glacier skiing region.
Even the journey to reach Saas-Fee – a route passing through the Saas valley with its scarped gorges and mountainsides – is an experience in itself. In car-free Saas-Fee, private vehicles can be left in the car park at the entrance to the village. The holiday resort of Saas-Fee lies at an altitude of 1800 metres at the foot of the 4545-metre-high Dom. The former village of mountain farmers has become one of the most popular Meccas for snowboarders in Europe. The underground Metro Alpin funicular railway leads right up onto the 3500-metre Mittelallalin. In clear weather, the lights from the Italian metropolis of Milan are visible from the highest revolving restaurant in the Alps. The ski region around the Mittelallalin offers year-round skiing and the 20 glacier pistes serve as a training ground to teams from throughout the world.

Summer

In addition to around 300 km of walking paths and numerous themed trails, it is an extraordinary experience to encounter the tame marmots that can be found beneath the Spielboden mountain station. More adventurous visitors might wish to cross the Alpin gorge, the brook gorge between Saas-Fee and Saas-Grund, passing along steep rock walls accompanied by a mountain guide. In the "adventure forest” in Saas Fee, those with a head for heights will be able to venture on various obstacle courses, swinging from a steel cable and passing from tree to tree across rope bridges, as well as whiz through the forest landscape on the «Feeblitz» summer and winter toboggan run. The Saas valley also has a 70-km-long network of mountain-bike tracks and a 5-km-long push-scooter route.

Winter

With its 22 lifts and 100 km of prepared pistes, the winter ski region of Saas Fee forms the heart of the entire ski region. In addition to Saas-Fee, there is a further ski area in the nearby region of Kreuzboden-Hochsaas above Saas-Grund. Twenty kilometres of winter walking trails and an 8-km-long cross-country ski trail are provided for non-Alpine skiers. Various toboggan runs, such as the 11-km-long toboggan run from Kreuzboden to Saas-Grund offer alternatives to skiing.

Highlights

  • Allalin ice pavilion – the secrets of the glacier are vented for visitors within the permanent ice.
  • Revolving restaurant – a far-reaching vista across the mountainscape is offered up by the revolving restaurant on the glacier of the Mittelallalin.
  • Alpin gorge – fixed rope route crossing of the spectacular brook gorge using rope bridges and tyrolienne cables; only with a mountain guide.
  • Adventure park – suspension rope park with courses of varying degrees of difficulty, in front of an impressive glacier backdrop.
  • Feeblitz toboggan run – with its 55-degree incline, the tobogganing fun already starts during the ascent. Evening tobogganing on the illuminated route is a special experience.
