Animal treasure hunt in the Saas Valley

Learn more about our animal kingdom

Playfully, you will learn exciting things about chamois, ibex, and our marmots. 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 starts 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 the local Alpine animals. The 5 km long animal treasure hunt takes about two hours and ends again at the tourist office.

That is where it comes out: Are your answers correct? Does the treasure chest with the secret code open? Whoever cracks the code can take a gift home.


From 2 May 2023 to mid-October 2023
