Visit the Val des Dix in the 4 seasons
It can't be said enough that the whole of Val d’Hérens is worth exploring in different seasons. As well as the winter sports available at our village resorts and the fabulous summer hikes available, Val d'Hérens is often described as the most beautiful valley in Valais. It still retains its unspoilt villages, heritage, traditions and way of life, and is worth a visit in any season.
This is a great place to live and holiday all year round. If you like to gently explore as the seasons go by and as you meet people; if you like unspoilt corners where Mother Nature is at her finest; if you like places where the focus is on nature and foodie pleasures, then you're sure to love the wild and authentic feel of our little valley, Val des Dix, and its picturesque villages
In the spring, the pastureland shakes off its snow-white coverings and goes green, springtime shades cover villages and mountain pastures, Hérens cattle emerge from their barns and thousands of flowers bloom on mayen huts.
Go for a meditative photo walk with Patricia, get your fill of untamed nature and discover the valley's springtime charm.
In the summer, nature reigns in the stunning mountain landscape with its mountain lakes, mayen huts, pastures, glaciers and peaks. Whether you're a hiker or prefer a slower pace of life, the valley sprinkles its alpine charm over mountain lovers away from the summer crowds.
