A home on the mountain at the end of the untouched Turtmann Valley at an altitude of 8,264 feet (2,519 meters) — this is the Turtmann hut for hikers, mountaineers and the hut owners Magdalena and Fredy Tscherrig. Surrounded by the Turtmann glacier and the impressive mountain world of the Bishorn, the Barrwand and the Diablon massif, the hut is an ideal starting point or a uniquely beautiful destination for hikes and mountain tours.

On our hike around the hut we will take you through the picturesque Trutmann Valley, lead you past the Turtmann Glacier and of course stop at the Turtmann Hut. Here Magdalena and Fredy await you with refreshing drinks and their legendary homemade Black Forest cherry cake. While you enjoy your meal in peace, you can enjoy the spectacular view and the simplicity of things up here from the terrace. Before descending back down to the valley, you can stay overnight with your hosts and the next day climb one of the surrounding peaks together with owner and mountain guide Fredy or even go on a glacier tour.

In addition to the alpine mountains around the Turtmann hut, there is much more to experience in the Valais. We have compiled seven of the most beautiful experiences for you in this collection. From expeditions on the largest alpine glacier to an excursion to the Black Nosed sheep in Zermatt to panoramic hikes lasting several days — here in Valais you will certainly find the right experience for you.



You will find even more experiences in the Valais around Nendaz, where you can walk along old irrigation canals. The bisses are hundreds of years old and still carry water today — the wet gold. Thanks to them, juicy sweet apricots grow in the region, which you can try in summer, then they are ripe: komoot.com/collection/873/liquid-gold-from-nendaz-veysonnaz.
