Val d’Hérens – Nature, Tradition, Authenticity
In winter, the Val d’Hérens is a white and invigorating paradise for skiers, in the heart of the Valais.
All snow sports are also well developed: discover the most beautiful cross-country trails in French-speaking Switzerland, let yourself be taken on our 100 km of snowshoe trails, learn about freeriding and sealskin hiking, or climb ice falls… This valley, cradle of the cow of the Hérens breed, also conceals a multitude of natural resources such as peaks at 4000 m altitude, glaciers, the Dent-Blanche, the pyramids of Euseigne.
An alpine civilization, a culture and traditions remarkably alive.
Evolènes, les Haudères, Arolla
It is the kingdom of the mountain. Ski slopes, cross-country skiing and winter activities are among the highlights of this region at the foot of the Dent Blanche. In the Evolène region, patois is still spoken on a daily basis and traditions are very colourful.
