Activities Saastal

Summer news 202


In summer, the Saastal with its southern climate and wealth of trip destinations is one of the most beautiful holiday regions in Switzerland, offering: 

SaastalCard
With the SaastalCard you are stress-free and mobile even in summer!

From the 1st overnight stay onwards, with the SaastalCard you can use the mountain railways in the Saas Valley free of charge (except Metro Alpin). All PostBus rides in the Saas Valley are also included (not valid for arrival and departure by PostBus). You also benefit from reductions of between up to 30 percent on a total of 36 offers. 

The SaastalCard is integrated into the local tourist taxes and is valid from the first night, as well as on arrival and departure day. Per night and person it only costs CHF 7.00 and for children from 6-16 years CHF 3.50.

Metro Plus Ticket
The SaastalCard or Magic Pass entitles you to purchase the Metro Plus ticket (Felskinn - Mittelallalin pedestrian ticket). You can use the Metro Alpin without restrictions during your stay for a one-time fee of CHF 45 (children 6-16 years, CHF 38.-). The Metro Plus ticket includes admission to the ice pavilion.

For guests holding the SaastalCard and Magic Pass, the Saastal Bergbahnen offers a reduction on the Metro Plus ticket of CHF 5 for adults and CHF 3 for children. For the reduction, both cards must be presented at the ticket office.

Endless mountain summer! 350 km hiking trails
Whether you are on a high-altitude hike or a themed trail, you’ll find yourself right in the heart of this breathtaking mountain world! Tranquillity and fresh air are our top priorities here.

Foxtrail
Since 20 June 2020 you can go on an exciting treasure hunt in the Saas Valley! Foxtrail is a team experience for friends and family get-togethers. Our valley will become a playground where you’ll have to crack the codes and find the hidden messages.

Our Marmots
They’ll get you up and going again! Probably the cutest villagers in Saas-Fee, these little rodents enjoy eating nuts and carrots all summer long – and now you’ll be able to visit them on our Murmeli Express (Allalino electric train).

Märliwucha
From 17 – 22, July 2022, the Saas Valley will be devoting itself entirely to the fairytale theme: all week long, you and your little ones will be accompanied by fairies, dwarves and dragons. Immerse yourself in our magical fairytale world!

Mattmark Half Marathon
On 10 September 2022, the Mattmark Half Marathon will take place for the 4th time. The start will be at the round church in Saas-Balen. The route then leads through beautiful larch forests past Saas-Grund and Almagell to the hamlet of Zermeiggern. On historic paths you then reach the dam wall in a pleasantly manageable climb. Finally, the most beautiful part follows for the runners, the 7-kilometre practically flat loop around the picturesque Mattmarksee!

For those who prefer a more leisurely pace, there is also the 8km route around the Mattmark dam or the Nordic Walking/Fun category.

Perfectly prepared cross-country ski runs through snow-covered larch forests and along the Vispa, which has solidified into ice, with impressive four-thousand-metre peaks all around: cross-country skiing is fun! In the holiday region, cross-country skiers' hearts beat not only longer, but also higher (depending on temperatures and snow conditions).

Winter hiking pass
Our winter hiking passes include the use of all the cable cars in the Saas Valley and simply make winter hiking life more enjoyable!

 

Foxtrail in winter
As the first Foxtrail in Valais, the trails in the Saas Valley were opened in June 2020. The best thing about them is that you can follow the fox's tracks in the Saas Valley even in winter. Solve the puzzles with friends or family. !

 

Sledging
Fantastic sledge runs await you here by us! In Saas-Grund you can run from Kreuzboden over a fabulous 11 kilometres into the village and enjoy a spectacular view of the Mischabel chain and the Mattmark region.
