If you’re seeking a getaway experience that puts you in touch with the true wonder of nature, then booking a hotel in the Saas Valley could be your answer. Soaring snow-covered mountains rise high above the villages in the Saas Valley, creating a panoramic backdrop to your stay that almost defies belief. Of the four villages nestled in the valley, the largest and most famous is the car-free glacier village of Saas Fee, sometimes known as the Pearl of the Alps as it nestles on a plateau surrounded by 13 peaks over 13,000 feet
Choose Your Hotel in Saas
With year-round skiing, hundreds of miles of high-altitude walking trails and all manner of sporting and cultural events set on and around the glacier throughout the year, the Saas Valley is a top choice for many people making the trip to Valais. In Saas, you could retreat from the stresses of life at a luxury gourmet and spa hotel. Curl up in a cosy traditional chalet, or relax in a chic contemporary apartment after a day on the piste. Wherever you choose to rest your head, the views that will greet you when you step out from your Saas hotel will be sure to take your breath away.
Explore the Spectacular Saas Valley
In the winter, snow sports are naturally the main attraction in the Saas Fee region. As well as 22 lifts leading to over 60 miles of groomed pistes, you’ll also be able to venture out on cross-country ski trails and heart-thumping toboggan runs. There’s plenty else for active types aside from the snow too, with hiking, guided gorge walking, mountain biking and an adventure forest course all on offer.
And when you’re ready for a break from the adrenalin, don’t miss the chance to see inside the magnificent glacier at the Allalin ice pavilion – the world’s largest ice grotto. Discover more about the culture and traditions of the remote Saas communities at the baking, farming and town museums. And take the cable car and funicular railway up to the Mittelallalin, where you can dine in unique style 11,338 feet above sea level at the highest revolving restaurant on the planet.
