In Saas Fee the walking possibilities are endless, and several cable-cars and chairlifts take you up above the village for spectacular views and higher paths. A must is a ride to the summit of the Metro Alpin, the world's highest underground funicular railway. Many Saas Fee hotels organise guided walks and picnics for guests to enjoy, whilst the tourist office also arranges a regular programme of concerts and folklore events. The village has a good selection of cafés, bars and restaurants. A day-trip to Zermatt to see the iconic Matterhorn is a must!

The walking opportunities in this region are superb, Saas Fee offers over 350km of well-marked paths, the majority of which are above the tree line. Post bus services offer access into the valley, and the cablecars and gondolas take walkers to the higher trails and viewpoints. The terrain is suited to all levels.
Easy Strollers will enjoy the gentle walking around Saas-Allmagell, Kreuzboden and Saas-Grund, or can take the walk around the Mattmark reservoir (approx. 1½ hrs),
Moderate Try the ‘Alpine Flower Trail’ a popular and pleasant walk on Kreuzboden above Saas-Grund, with 1000-year old larches and over 240 species of alpine plant thriving here (approx. 3½ hrs).
