Think of Val d'Anniviers as a secret side-valley, away from the hustle and bustle of mainstream Valais, with a whole batch of tiny villages and resorts just waiting to be explored and enjoyed. This gorgeous valley is so close to Sierre, yet only accessed by an incredibly winding road that probably helps to keep out the crowds.
The valley is brushed with pine and larch, scattered with dark-timber chalets and postcard villages set against 4000m peaks. It beckons skiers eager to slalom away from the crowds for fresh powder and hikers seeking big nature. This is a whole different experience.
