Secret Goms Valley Walk

goms

Are you dreaming about a romantic but adventurous holiday for you and your beloved one? Then choose a Secret Goms Valley walk and get ready to explore the high peaks of Alps, taste great vegetarian meal options, admire nature and observe wildlife. This route is a self-guided walking for 7 nights from hotel-to-hotel.

During this fabulously scenic independent walking holiday explore the undiscovered Goms Valley in Southern Switzerland close to the Italian border. A long-time favourite with Swiss hikers, it’s a region of outstanding natural beauty and, during your week, you will see some spectacular sites: majestic snowy mountains, thundering waterfalls and the Aletsch, Europe’s longest glacier. Besides, along with the nature beauty, you’ll get to see Gothic churches, Baroque chapels, beautiful mountain shrines and charming wooden villages bedecked with flowers.

The well-marked paths alongside the infant River Rhone will be at your service. The River Rhone gushes between wooden bridges on its way to Lake Geneva – look out for marmots, red starts and golden eagles circling above. To make easier route for you, choose the superb mountain transport system – cable cars, chairlifts and the bright scarlet Matterhorn Gottard Bahn. It will allow you to choose walking distances according to your sense of wellbeing each day.

The places where you’ll be staying are as special as their surroundings and you’ll taste superb cuisine every evening. You’re sure to appreciate the contrasts between mouthwatering Valais cuisine in Obergesteln and the artistic creations of expert chef in Blitzingen.
