It's not just people who feel at ease in the Free Republic of Holidays, Saas-Fee: the Saas Valley is a paradise for animals too. Young animal lovers can befriend mountain chamois, hand-feed tame marmots and pet the pot-bellied pigs and pygmy goats.
At Waldhüs Bodmen restaurant between Saas-Fee and Saas-Almagell there is a small barn where chickens, rabbits and guinea pigs frolic. Another barn is home to pigs and alpacas.
By cable car or on foot go to Hannig and enjoy the company of goats and marmots.
