Saas Valley (Valais)

Language navigation

Saas Valley (Valais) A mountain path with a glacier view

A magnificent mountain path is located on the sunny hill overlooking the Vispa River in the Saas valley. You can reach it by setting out from Saas-Almagell, the village located farthest away in the Saas Valley, then heading to Kreuzboden above Saas-Grund. On the way, you can savour the fantastic views of the chain of mountains around Saas-Fee which are all over 4,000 meters.

The highlights

  • Almagellerhorn adventure trail: the spectacular approach to the Almageller Valley begins in Furggstalden. Exposed sections are secured with metal steps, ropes and three suspension bridges. Those who are not sure-footed or are with children under 10 can use the alternative route via Spissgraben.
  • Kreuzboden: visitors young and old will get their money’s worth at the family amusement park by the gondola station. There you will find a (non-motorized) go-kart park and a playground with a big slide and a paddling area; small children can ride on ponies, while older children can have fun with rafts on the small lake. For adults, a fun wellness trail with hammocks and deckchairs is available.
