What We Love About Valais

Tourists looking for a wonderful winter escape in Europe can’t go wrong with adding Switzerland to their itinerary, especially Valais, one of the country’s 26 cantons. There, you’ll find numerous resort towns, many located in the Alpine areas. The humble town of Zermatt is one of the most popular ones because of the numerous ski slopes and hiking trails to conquer. It also sits at the foot of the looming Matterhorn Mountain, which is known for its pyramid-esque shape. It’s also the home of the Great Aletsch Glacier, the largest glacier in the Swiss Alps where you can ride a cable car to its viewing point and enjoy a jaw-dropping view of Swiss landscapes.
