Children can go on an exciting treasure hunt here or whizz down the mountain on the monster scooter. Further up is Heidbodmen. You can enjoy a panoramic view of the Monta Rosa range and the imposing Strahlhorn, followed by the Egginer, the Mittaghorn and to the north-west, the foothills of the Mischabel range.

Treasure Hunt Valais/Wallis Promotion

In collaboration with Valais/Wallis Promotion and SPICK, a new treasure hunt for families has been created from Furggstalden to Saas-Almagell. Along the way, many interesting facts and information about the forest habitat await the young and old treasure hunters. The starting point is the Furggstalden mountain station, which you can reach on foot or more comfortably by chairlift. All the necessary utensils for an unforgettable treasure hunt are available in the tourist offices in the Saas Valley. A treasure map will guide you to the eight stations. All family members do their bit to find the treasure at the end and take a little surprise home.
