Climbing and bouldering in the Aletsch Arena

Summer + winter sports


The hiking paradise Aletsch Arena offers 300 km of prepared and secured hiking trails. This in the centre of the UNESCO World Natural Heritage 'Swiss Alps', around the largest glacier in the Alps, the 23 km long Aletsch Glacier. But this is only the beginning. Well over 1,000 km of hiking trails of all levels of difficulty criss-cross the Upper Valais. And we know many of them personally! We will be happy to advise you.

Mountain Bike + Bicycle

The Serviced Apartments Wallis are located at the start and end point of the Stoneman Glaciara – the ultimate challenge for ambitious mountain bikers. But also for everyday bikers our region offers beautiful tours and bike trails. Last but not least, the Swiss bicycle route 1, the Rhone Route, passes by us.

Mountain biking


Above the clouds, freedom is boundless. In the Aletsch Arena flight paradise, you can experience it for yourself, soaring like an eagle high above the mountains and the Rhone Valley. A tandem flight is the first step. And some people have already taken to it and started a real flight training.

The more than 100 km of ski slopes in the Aletsch Arena are situated between 2,000 and 3,000 m above sea level. From Riederalp to Bettmeralp and Fiescheralp. From the Eggishorn, after a refreshment with a fantastic view, then back again. There is something for everyone: blue, red and black slopes, practice hills and professional ski schools.

Cross-country skiing

The cross-country skiing paradise of Switzerland is the Goms valley. The Matterhorn-Gotthard-train takes you from Mörel directly into the Goms. Along the young Rhone, you can glide from one train station to the next, and in the evening the train will bring you safely back to Mörel.
