Holiday resorts and holiday regions in Switzerland

Evolène offers a wide choice of activities for everyone and its splendid alpine peaks include the Dent Blanche. There are more than 250 km of clearly-marked hiking trails; 100 km of mountain bike trails; activities include paragliding, tennis, trout-fishing, a fitness circuit, as well as the newly opened via ferrata for the more adventurous plus the alpine climbing school. Many cultural events are also organised – for example, a visit to the museum in Evolène, guided excursions on various subjects: geology, glaciology, fauna and flora, evening concerts and much more.

In winter the mountain panorama covered in a blanket of snow is breathtaking: over 100 km of alpine ski runs, for all categories of skiers, are carefully maintained, and snowshoe excursions or helicopter-skiing with mountain guides are organised.

Here you will find two of the best cross-country ski circuits in Central Valais, as well as two natural skating-rinks. Or you could try climbing frozen waterfalls. Our weekly programme of activities includes torch-lit and moonlit skiing or a helicopter flight.

The Evolène region includes the villages of Arolla, Evolène, La Sage and Les Haudères. Together they form the largest commune in area in Switzerland.
