Saas-Fee is a special place

Saas-Fee is situated at the very end of the Saas valley. It can be reached by car and bus, but cars are not allowed into the village. One needs to park at the entrance of the village. Saas-Fee is absolute heaven if you like the combination of stunning alpine scenery, a comfortable village and plenty of outdoor activities.

Winter fun in Saas-Fee

Saas-Fee is a paradise for snow lovers. It’s surrounded by 18 peaks of more than 4000 m high. This means that snow is practically guaranteed. 

Several snow areas can be reached directly from the village: Plattjen, Felskinn-Mittelallalin and Spielboden-Längfluh. Even more snow fun is available in the ski areas of the nearby villages Saas-Almagell and Saas-Grund.

Apart from skiing and snowboarding, winter activities include ice skating, curling, sledging, winter hiking and snowshoe hiking. Guided glacier tours and an adventure forest with zip lines are available too.

The winter season can last long in this area. Cable cars and lifts are open from mid-December to early April. Some lifts already operate from late October/early November. 

Pros and cons of Saas-Fee

Hiking, biking, winter sports and just enjoying the Alps are reasons to come to Saas-Fee. You can ski and snowboard here all year round, even in summer if you're experienced. There's excellent transportation into the mountains. The village isn't really large but it is fully focused on catering to demanding tourists. There's a fine selection of shops and restaurants.

You'd best focus on local activities, as the village is quite isolated. It takes close to an hour to get to other towns of some size. It is located amidst the mountains, so the weather can vary a lot. It can rain for days but clear sunny days are common as well. We would advise to stay at least three nights to fully enjoy this region. There's enough to do to spend two or more weeks here though.
