This destination encompasses 2 giants of the Alps: the Matterhorn – the perfect mountain, worldwide symbol of climbing – and Monte Rosa, second only in height to Mont Blanc. These are valleys and peaks that reward the visitor at any time of year with stunning views, unspoilt nature and endless opportunities for activities.
In winter, the snow blankets everything, to the delight of ski and snowboard enthusiasts in the great ski areas of Cervinia and Monterosa Ski, between Champoluc and Gressoney. Meanwhile summer is the undisputed queen of green slopes and meadows, trekking and unforgettable excursions like the trip to Gouffre des Busserailles, a spectacular ravine 35 metres deep at the foot of the Matterhorn.
These valleys lie waiting to welcome visitors among forests and lakes, isolated Walser villages, where German-speaking communities still survive, and delightful little towns like Chamois and Antagnod, always surrounded by breathtaking scenery.
