Marmot watching They will eat straight out of your hand

"Murmeltierführung"

We visit those cute little animals, watch them, feed them, learn a lot about their lives and with some luck we can even pet them. A great adventure for families, groups or school classes.

Marmots in the Saas Valley
Marmots actually spend most of the year sleeping – they can hibernate for up to nine months. But when they’re awake, they capture the hearts of visitors big and small.

The Saas Valley is home to many marmots. Although they live hidden away in spacious underground burrows, they can be spotted in many parts of Saas-Fee and are relatively tame. They’re canny little creatures, and they know their visitors well. They can guess, for example, that they have healthy and delicious snacks in their bags, such as carrots, peanuts or lettuce. That’s why they sometimes let themselves be petted, bringing big smiles to people’s faces.
