With almost 300 days of sunshine a year, a multitude of majestic four-thousand-meter peaks, unspoilt nature and characteristic regional products, Valais is a first-class summer dreamland: an almost limitless El Dorado for sports fans, gourmets and culture lovers. You can explore all the nuances of the region in every imaginable way, but especially when hiking along the 8,000 kilometers of footpaths, you will collect inimitable summer memories. Along your trails, you'll admire the most impressive peaks in the Alps, discover ancient irrigation channels and snow-capped glaciers. Welcome to Valais.

In June 2019, six adventurous bloggers will each be exploring a spectacular hiking route in various Swiss regions: Climb the Mythen near Lucerne, enjoy the view from the San Salvatore in Ticino or a relaxed rail hiking trip? Switzerland also has something for every type of hiker in the Valais, Graubünden and Bern region, with a wide variety of hiking trails to choose from — the path quickly becomes the destination! Discover the three stages of the Valais here and hike together with "OFF THE PATH" (bhc2019.myswitzerland.com/region/wallis) to the iciest glaciers and the most panoramic peaks.

There's also a great competition: Test your knowledge of Switzerland and win your very own personal trip to Switzerland for two: With SWISS you fly to Switzerland, where you will explore the Bern region and Ticino. A total of five overnight stays await you at the Handeck Hotel and Natural Resort and the Hotel Belvedere Locarno. On top of that, you'll get two Swiss Travel Passes, with which you can use buses, trains and ships on your journey free of charge.
