Nendaz in Summer

Nendaz Village

Nendaz, at 1365m, is a lovely village based in a traditional mountain village on a plateau, with beautiful views over the Rhone valley. It enjoys over 300 days of sunshine each year, making it one of the sunniest places in the Alps.

In summer, there's a delightful open-air pool with views across the Rhone valley, tennis (8 courts), squash, fitness course, fishing, paragliding or just enjoy the sunshine and mountain air.

There is a range of facilities in the resort: bars, restaurants, clubs, supermarkets, butchers, boutiques, post office, banks, sports/fitness centre, sauna, massage, children's playground, chemists and doctors.

Nendaz has been given special accreditation by the Swiss Tourist Board for its child-friendly facilities and its summer and winter activities (eg. a Robin Hood excursion in the summer and ski kindergarten in the winter).

Nendaz is also internationally famous for its annual Alphorn festival, held in late July/early August each year.

Around Nendaz

There is a wealth of activities close to Nendaz including rock-climbing, horse-riding, golf (in Sion, and championship courses in Verbier and Crans Montana), thermal baths/spa (in Ovronnaz), boat trips (on Lake Geneva, 40 mins away), sightseeing in Sion (the old medieval town is worth seeing and there's a great Friday market), and Roman ruins, art museum and St. Bernard dog museum (in Martigny).

Walkers' Paradise

Nendaz has over 250km of marked footpaths of all levels. The area is famous for its bisses walks, relatively flat paths that travel alongside the little irrigation channels that wind their way round the mountains. These bisses are ancient routes that provide a fascinating tour through the mountain villages and forests of 1000 year old larch trees, and make perfect walks with children (not too steep and you can race "boats" along the bisses).

Mountain restaurants and lifts are open throughout the year providing easy access to the high mountains and glacier year-round.

Mountain Biking

Nendaz offers over 200km of mountain bike trails. The trails are well signposted and are suitable for all levels of ability. Outings are organised throughout the summer and those who prefer downhill biking have the possibility of reaching the mountain summits via the ski lifts.
