The Valais Corner in summer

This little cable car runs from Gsteig over the canton boarder to the Lake Sanetsch in the canton Valais. There's lots for hikers to discover including the source of the River Saane, the circular hike around the reservoir and the Sanetsch Pass. Climbing enthusiasts will find plenty of challenging climbing parks here, and bikers will adore the 30-kilometre long descent to Sion in the Valais.


Highlights Summer

The beautiful mountain hike around the Sanetsch reservoir lake is mostly flat, yet exciting. The lake is surrounded by green pastures and steep, rocky mountain slopes. The Sanetsch area offers three family-friendly climbing gardens with one-rope routes as well as about 50 multi-rope routes and is considered a top climbing area known throughout Switzerland. For bikers, the 30-kilometre route to Sion provides the ultimate in downhill fun.


Highlights Winter

Thanks to the permanent timekeeping in Lauenen, skiers can challenge each other. If there is enough snow, our guests can look forward to a small fun park. The children's ski school is suitable for ski lessons with lots of fun and games for the little ski cracks. The rather easy cross-country ski runs in Innergsteig and Lauenen are particularly suitable for beginners and connoisseurs. Several winter hiking trails await hikers accompanied by an impressive mountain backdrop.
