I went on a hike around the "Marmot's Paradise" at the Rochers de Naye. After a tough three-hours walk, it suddenlty became clear to me in which "paradise" these small animals have to live. HELL! In the midst of their natural habitat, electrical fences have been installed. I can even imagine that something was done underground, so that these animals... More

We missed the opportunity to feed marmotts in natural environment (in Saas Fee) so we took a (second) chance. It is obviously not so nice and natural when marmotts are behing the fence, still it is nice to watch those animals at no distance as they enjoy being fed by carrotts or peanuts. Recommended for children and adults alike.

~See my other TripAdvisor reviews on Rochers de Naye and Plein Roc! ~if you don't fancy walking up the mountain to the other Marmot pens, just visit the one right outside the train station canteen ~when there aren't many people in the canteen (after the train leaves) go ask someone to show you the Marmot pen...they may let you pet...

This train trip is spectacular. Try to do on a clear day as clouds rumble in at times. View is amazing as are the marmots. We only saw one who we gave crusts from our sandwich to. There are others but due to weather were inside their house.

Train trip very lovely vista lovely. We had to return due to breathing difficulties of my brother otherwise we would have eaten well worth it (we could have got off and eaten at one of the stops on the way down)

The trip up to the mountain with the train was spectacular. It was not too long (20 min), but what a climb! And the scenery while climbing up is beautiful! While the ticket is not cheap (as it is in Switzerland), but it's worth it. Once up there, there are several hiking track that you can take, but with young... More

There is a small collection of marmot's at this point, which i think has been done just to create another tourist attraction. Nothing special.

We were expecting to see marmots in their natural habita and not fenced off in the cages.. This is a far cry from paradise.. That said, marmots can be easily spotted, they are very interactive and fun to watch..
