Lötschental lies embedded in an imposing mountain landscape between the Valaisian and Bernese Alps. The mostly undeveloped valley with its still authentic villages lures visitors to enjoy a vacation in pristine surroundings, far from the large tourism centers.
In winter, the snow-guaranteed, well-developed winter paradise Lauchernalp invites you to linger. The sunny ski resort offers you 55 km slopes up to 3111 m above sea level, and opens up a racy freeride area. Surrounded by the imposing mountain backdrop of the Unesco World Heritage Site, lies the well with a cable car, two chair lifts, two t-bar-lifts and a glacier cableway accessible skiing area Lauchernalp.
The glacier cableway leads up onto the Hockenhorngrat (3.111 m, glacier ski area with numerous medium-difficulty pistes and freeride arena), and also provides access to a winter walking trail at over 3000 metres in altitude with a panoramic view of 40 four-thousand-metre mountain summits.
For cross-country skiers and winter hikers there are about 50 km winter hiking trails, as well as 24 km classic and skating trails to explore.
