In a privileged natural Alpine setting that is almost perfectly preserved, the St-Bernard region offers a wide range of sports and cultural activities.
In summer, there is something that will appeal to every hiker – educational paths, mountain huts, alpine lakes, nature reserves, walks with St-Bernard dogs or treks over several days – all will brighten up your holidays, right up to October when our forests – which are amongst Switzerland’s largest – transform into their most beautiful colours.
Don’t hesitate to enhance your stay with a visit to the Grand-St-Bernard Hospice Museum – one of the most visited in Valais, as well as to the Flore-Alpe botanical gardens in Champex-Lac, one of the richest and most prestigious in the Alps, or to the old Champex-Lac Artillery Fort, for a journey in time through our Swiss history, or with the treetop walk at La Fouly for a moment of relaxation in the trees or with a dip in one of our swimming pools to freshen up.
In winter, our charming resorts offer ski runs and freeride for all levels with spectacular panoramic views, cross country ski runs in breathtaking natural surroundings and snowshoe trails in the heart of our white forests.
Proud of our region and of its local produce represented by the famous ‘Entremont Basket’, the people of the St-Bernard region keep a long list of traditions alive and well – all of which we invite you to become acquainted with.
Welcome to the the Pays du St-Bernard!
