Walked from Bettmeralp to Riederalp after swimming in the lake, something I've always wanted to do but obviously not in the winter. I will definitely return in winter to experience this magical place. Even with it been summer there was still a lot to do...More

The most family friendly ski resort I ever visited. No cars allowed. Ski slopes are running through the village, so no hassle with driving to the first ski lift. Hiking paths are integrated in the ski area, so you (skiing and hiking) in some charming...More

If looking for skiing holiday its the place to go! No skiing no problem. Hiking/walking with amazing views surrounded by beautiful mountains is also an option. Access by cable car only. Few hotels to choose from, miles of slopes and walking trails.
