Champex - Valais


Welcome in Champex-Lac

Nestled around a magnificent Alpine lake, this village has nurtured a traditionally warm welcome for over a century. The resort is appropriately nicknamed “Switzerland’s little Canada” with its vast forests, lake and traditional wooden chalets.

In summer, there is something for everyone to choose from with a large range of leisure and sports activities – excursions on the lake in a rowing or pedal boat; idling along a bisse (waterway) or more athletic hikes, fishing, etc. And an enchanting visit to the Alpine botanical garden and an introduction to the artillery fort in the bowels of the earth shouldn’t be missed at any price!

Like La Fouly, Champex-lac is also an important leg on the Tour du Mont Blanc, located three-quarters of the way along the route.

The area has an attractive winter offering: downhill and cross country ski runs, artificial and natural skating rinks, an ice pyramid, walk around the lake, groomed snow shoe paths, or walks with the St-Bernard dogs.

In addition, the resort is on the Haute Route itinerary which goes from Chamonix to Zermatt and is usually the second stop over on this legendary ski excursion. Champex-Lac in winter has many meanings!



Opening times:

Every day between 9.30am and 4.30pm from mid-december until the 8th April 2018.
