Rivers flow down to the valleys from the snowy peaks of the Alps. When the snow starts to melt, the water in these rivers rush down with great speed making it a great place to go rafting. In parts where the riverbed is narrow, the water swirls and roars with great force against the boulders. For rafting enthusiasts, these are the most challenging places to conquer. There are various places along the river Dranse and along other rivers, where you can go rafting. [More]


If you are less experienced or just want to take it easy, go kayaking. You can either go into a kayak with your partner or child, or you can go by yourself. You can also go on a kayaking tour with a group and stop at various villages to rest on a terrace, during your trip.

Mountain climbing

There are also less intense trails which you can do together with a guide and where you climb somewhat easier mountains.

Via Ferrata

You are securely attached to these ropes whilst you move along the trail both sideways and up and down. Entire trails are set out with ropes so that you can go mountaineering either alone, with your partner or with a group. [More]
