Favorite thing: The forest path from Saas Fee gently slopes down to Saas Almagel the most southerly village in the Saastal. Several waterfalls can be seen in this area- indeed I thought there were more here than the valley of waterfalls as Lauterbrunnen in the Bernese Oberland is known as.
Favorite thing: At the end of the forest walk into Saas Almagel cross the bridge over the river into the village centre. Just across from the duck pond is a fine view of the moutains around the Mattmark Dam. Watch out for the ducks on the village pond here as they always seem to be hungrry!
Favorite thing: Its an easy broad forest trail from Saas-Fee (1800 m) to Saas-Almagell (1672 m). Half the way down the restaurant Bodmen is an inviting place to stop for a coffee and cake with its sunny terrace. The village seen below is Saas Grund - the other main village in the Saastal.
Walking to Saas-Almagell
Favorite thing: Saas-Almagell is just a ten minute bus ride away from Saas Fee - our base in the Saastal but the pleasant way of getting there was a 40 minute stroll down a forest path into the village. Cross the panoramic bridge over the gorge in Saas Fee and take the path to the left.
Favorite thing: There are paths leading down from the forest to a lower valley path into the village but stay on the higher path and you will have fine views of the village of Saas Almagel.
