Saas-Almagell, the Mountain Village Pearl

A magical place, high up in the Swiss Alps, with authentic vibe and warm hospitality in the mitst of a breathtaking mountain scenery.

A place to recharge and escape from your daily busy life. Saas Almagell is part of the very sunny Saas Valley in Canton Wallis (fr: Valais).  People come here alone, as a couple or with their family to enjoy the scenery and sport options in both summer or winter. 

Saas-Almagell has managed to keep its authentic Swiss Alpine character through the years: old barns, peace and quiet, idyllic corners, a small lake. No stress, no rush, plenty of time, warm-hearted people.

The snowy sun terrace on Furggstalden is fabulous in the winter; in the summer, visitors have a wealth of stunning hiking trails at their feet. Immerse yourself in the untouched, pristine landscape.

Winter

Former and current ski stars Pirmin, Heidi and Silvan Zurbriggen learned their sport in the family-friendly Furggstalden-Heidbodme skiing area. But Saas-Almagell offers much more than wide downhill slopes. The cross-country trails stretch up the valley from Eiu Alp directly beneath the imposing dam wall to Saas-Balen. The ice field offers plenty of fun sporting activities, such as sledging, snowshoe walking and winter hiking. Cool sports to fire you up!

Summer

Surrounded by nature with a stunning view of the magnificent mountain scenery, Saas-Almagell gives summer visitors plenty to look forward to. Whether you choose to hike, bike, climb or take part in one of the many other activities on offer, you’re sure to feel like a new person after a holiday here. The village is at the heart of a huge network of hiking routes. The Suonen Trail follows the region’s historical water channel, known locally as suonen, while the Almagellerhorn adventure trail crosses two hair-raising, but totally safe 70 metre long rope bridges. The butterflies in your stomach are just one memory of this stunning natural scenery you can keep forever.

Mattmark reservoir

An outing to the nearby Mattmark reservoir is a highlight of any stay here, and if you like, you can visit the pump station at the Zermeiggern power plant further down in the valley. Cyclists can reach the natural dam on their bikes via winding roads that snake their way through lush green alpine meadows. Italy is just a hop, skip and a jump away over the Monte Moro and Antrona pass – the same route used by the Romans and by smugglers over the centuries. The “Mountain Village Pearl” has always had an allure all its own.
