Full description

Saas-Fee is among the finest car-free ski resorts, alongside with Zermatt and Lauterbrunnen, known to the world as “The Pearl of the Alps.”

You won’t find such a wondrous, traffic-free mountain resort with snowy peaks at the backdrops anywhere else in the world. The area has retained the fine traditions and architecture from the rural life of the past.

This fascinating position is a significant glacier village at an altitude of 1800 metres above sea level, surrounded with 13 peaks, reaching a height of four thousand metres.

The resort village is nestled between the towering mountains of the Swiss Alps. It is characterised by its genuine Alpine charm, the cosy narrow streets, the sun and crystal-clear water and the small chalet-style houses and barns.

This glacier village can be a real paradise both for those who are fond of skiing and those who prefer hiking. The immediacy of the magnificent scenery takes all nature lover's breaths away, especially on a very clear day, when the brooding hills are even more astonishing.

The summer in Saas-Fee draws hikers and rock climbers by offering various possibilities of walking trails among endless routes to discover and convenient use of the local transports and resort lifts. All those facilities will allow you to achieve the highest peaks when skiing, or reach higher walking paths to admire the magnificent unfolded panoramic views.

Skiing in Sass-Fee itself is incredible; the skiing area here reaches a breathtaking altitude of 3600 metres, which is suitable for everyone. Professionals can enjoy skiing from the highest peaks, while beginners are offered flat sunny slopes. They can go to the ski rental in Saas-Fee to practice in the village. There are also plenty of supervised fun activities for children, where they can enjoy their time in the snow park at the Mittelallalin while the carvers are creating amazing sculptures.

Thanks to its proximity to the glaciers, there is always a reliable snow cover regardless of the weather outside, making for extensive skiing pistes. Even in the summertime, there is a possibility of skiing on the glacier, making it a wonderland for winter sports lovers all year round.

After a full day of exploration, reward yourself in a romantic, atmospheric restaurant in the town or grab a drink at one of the many bars with sunny terraces.

Alongside all this, Saas-Fee Valley is among the most famous family-friendly destinations and has the honour of receiving the quality award for "Families Welcome" in 2005.

Holidays in this village are the perfect choice for everyone, in order to regenerate their energies in this magical mountain landscape, breathe the pure Alpine air and unwind from the stresses of the daily routine.

Furthermore, Saas-Fee is an invigorating place, and there are lots of things to do that deserve a try. Here are some of them:

  • Visit Ice Grotto and the Revolving Restaurant.
  • Curling and Ice Skating.
  • Hike to Britannia Hut.
  • Chessjen Glacier.
