Full description

Crans-Montana is one of Switzerland’s typical famous ski resorts. It is situated just in the heart of the Swiss Alps at an altitude of 1500 Metres.

This resort is one of the most gorgeous parts of the dreamland that is Switzerland. Crans-Montana is a holiday resort full of sunshine, which charms all its visitors. Crans-Montana is emphatically a luxurious city rather than a rustic village with wooded surroundings.

The Alpine resort is made up of two featured centres - Crans from the west and Montana from the east. They are linked to each other by a linear, mountainside path, which offers stunning views across the Valais Region of Western Switzerland.

Crans-Montana is a rich part of Switzerland with famous brand shops in the pedestrian-friendly centre, luxurious accommodation and gourmet restaurants, which present real Swiss high-quality services. The mountain huts are an exciting opportunity to try and enjoy the tasty traditional wine and dishes, especially the delicious Swiss fondue.

This resort offers its tourists a wonderful opportunity to admire the spectacular panoramic views. Particularly on a clear day, the views extend from the landmark of Switzerland - Matterhorn to the most photographed mountain - Mont Blanc in France, which is the highest peak in Europe.

It is also considered a perfect holiday resort for families, where all generations will find an interest that suits their tastes among the many activities all year round.

In order to get away from your daily routine, take a taste of a relaxing day in one of the wellness and spa centres offering health care treatments.

Crans-Montana, being a venue for different sporting events, attracts tourists from all over the world. Here you can find almost all types of outdoor and indoor sporting activities, from golf, hiking or biking in the mountain forests, five swimming lakes, canyoning, water-skiing, and ending with paragliding and ballooning.

Overall, Crans-Montana is a lovely Swiss town characterised by the surrounding massive Alpine peaks in every direction. The little cosy town is very attractive and up-market for a peaceful and fulfilling trip.

AlpExcursion invites all tourists to delve into the world of relaxation and regeneration during a private trip to this wonderland.
