Valais is a natural source of inspiration according to Swiss Discovery DMC. Whether it’s for a conference, congress, or an incentive activity, there’s no other setting in the Alps more perfectly suited to events than Valais, and here’s why…
With a landscape full of rich contrasts between picturesque valleys and snow-covered mountains, Valais has a great deal to offer as a skiing and hiking resort, golfing mecca, wellness oasis and cultural heritage site.
The majestic four-thousanders not only create impressive panorama, they also provide a unique setting in which to experience winter sports. The Valais has the highest altitude ski regions in Switzerland and can guarantee snow on over 2,000 kilometres of pistes.
Meanwhile groups visiting in summer will discover over 8,000 kilometres of marked hiking trails, ranging from paths up to high peaks, through fragrant larch forests and nature reserves, over suspension bridges and along vineyard trails.
Robust wines with mineral notes, cheeses with floral undertones, vitamin-rich fruit and vegetables, characterful salted meats and rare spices – Valais is home to a large number of local specialities that taste simply wonderful.
Skills and innovation
Situated in the heart of the Alps in a breath-taking natural setting that alternates between green plains and deep snow, Valais is also notable for its flourishing industry which combines cutting-edge technologies and innovative competence centres.
Endless forests, majestic glaciers and emerald green mountain lakes: Valais in all its unspoilt glory can best be experienced on a hike on a moraine, where you immerse yourself in the fascinating world of ice flows.
Ski with a champion
Spend an unforgettable day on the slopes with one or more former World Cup skiers. Expect top-class coaching, insider tips and a fascinating insight into the international racing scene.
