Within every paradise there is always an epicentre of sorts - I’m sure Eden had a particularly sparkling pool, for example – and at Valais that pool is without a doubt the Obergoms area. Ideal for cross-country skiers new and established, its unique setting means that its blissfully snow-sure landscape of 86km connects with 12 picturesque villages along the way, practically every one with its own train stop.
Sun-worn wooden houses and hidden hamlets house passed-down, age-old Nordic ski traditions. With ten trails ranging from the 3km training track from Obergesteln to Oberwald, to the 86km unique cross-country ski experience that takes you from Niederwald to Oberwald, without a doubt there is something for everyone.
At the end of a long day breathing in the freshest air that Switzerland has to offer, you deserve to be able to settle down, curl up and bask in stylish, comforting surroundings. Enter Hotel de Londres. An outstanding location situated in Brig, one of Valais’ prettiest villages.
Farm-fresh breakfasts and a fusion of Swiss and English style makes Hotel de Londres a comforting encampment after a long day skiing, where eccentric hints from House of Hackney prints couple with cool, calm, Swiss design highlights.
A short walk from the train station and with its own Ski & Wellness Promo Package available through us, there has never been a better time for you to grab some skis and skim the earth parallel to the mountains.
(February is boring, after all - go have some fun.)
The Aficionados find fun, cool, creative places to stay that have strong accents of design and even stronger picture-perfect locations.
