The High Alpine Pilgrims' Path: A trail between nature and spirituality The new high Alpine path from Saas-Fee to Italy.

60 km. 5 stages. 2 countries. ‘If you’re going to do something, do it well’ is the motto of this spiritual, high alpine pilgrims' way from Saas-Fee to Italy, which crosses boundaries in more ways than one. Embark on 60 breathtaking kilometres, where you can leave the everyday behind, and let your soul be stirred.

The shortest section of the path leads from Saas-Almagell over what was once the Chapel Trail from Saas-Fee, and lasts around 90 minutes – depending on how long you want to spend sightseeing, as there’s plenty to see here. For example, the famous chapel, "Maria zur Hohen Stiege" is certainly worth a visit. The highest point of the pilgrims' way is situated 2838m above sea level and takes you over the fantastic Antron Pass, part of one of the oldest mountain passes in the Saas valley, surrounded by unforgettable views. Coins have been discovered on the pass, suggesting that it was once used by the Romans in 324-500BC.

In addition to the unforgettable experience of being surrounded by nature, the pilgrims' way is dotted with stations where you can stop a while and learn interesting facts about the region. Whether it’s a commemorative plaque, a Buddhist centre in Bordo, the way of the cross to the holy Monte Calvario, or the Heidbome Panorama Path: on the new pilgrims' way, everyone will find their own individual, spiritual path to nature. The journey is an experience that inspires in every sense, and allows everyone to follow their own path.
