Animal treasure hunt in the Saas Valley

Learn more about our animal kingdom

In a playful way you will learn all kinds of interesting things about chamois, ibex and of course our marmots. By the way, these are a popular attraction here - nowhere else will you find such tame and trusting marmots as here in the Saas Valley.

The treasure hunt begins with a march towards Stafelwald. There you pass the Schäferstube  and continue to the Stafelwald. At each of the eight stations there is a wooden box with information about local Alpine animals. The 5 km long animal treasure hunt takes about two hours and ends again at the tourist office.

There it ends: Are your answers right? Does the treasure chest with the secret code open? Whoever cracks the code can take a gift home.

The animal treasure hunt is possible until 21 October 2020!
