Exciting facts about the Saas Valley

300 days of sunshine in the Saas Valley

The mountains so close

Our region is very popular with mountain sports enthusiasts. The 18 four-thousand-meter peaks, the numerous SAC mountain huts, alpine tours, gorges, the via ferratas, the rope park and the bouldering possibilities make every mountain-sports-heart beat faster. 
Experience something extraordinary and climb your first four-thousand-metre peak with a mountain guide. The Allalinhorn (4027 m a.s.l.) is very popular with beginners and the proud mountain catches the eye directly when you visit Saas-Fee.My first four-thousander

The cutest villagers

The marmots awaken from mid-April! You can visit the tame and sweet animals at Spielboden or Stafelwald until late summer. With a bit of luck, you can catch a glimpse of the marmots in autumn before they go into hibernation and feed them carrots or nuts from your hand.

Summer- & Autumnskiing

In Saas-Fee, summer skiing on the glacier at 3,600 m above sea level is even possible in summer! Ski pros from all over the world take advantage of this. That's why it's quite possible that a ski star will cross your path during the autumn holidays.

The highest metro in the world, the Metro Alpin, takes you to the summer ski area. At the top, you'll find the world's highest revolving restaurant and the opportunity to marvel at ice sculptures in the ice pavilion.
