Nendaz, Switzerland

Nendaz has been awarded a “Families Welcome” seal of quality, offering a diverse selection of children’s activities, facilities for toddlers, walking paths that can accommodate strollers, playgrounds and craft workshops. With plenty of activities for children to enjoy, it would be hard to find a better destination for skiing and snowboarding enthusiasts. A natural destination for those passionate about winter sports including ski runs with varied terrains and altitudes, an outdoor ice rink, sledding run and snowshoe tracks. But it isn’t only snow bunnies who are well catered for. The region is also extraordinarily beautiful and when the snow gives way, you will find a blanket of Alpine flowers and sunny skies. Explore the mountain, whether it’s a gentle walk along the hiking trails or a challenging mountain route, Nendaz offers all the beauty of the Alps without the crowds.

The food culture here reflects its mountains and unique climate, offering rustic and indulgent treats that are perfect after a full day of activities. Be sure to try the famously delicious fondue, one of its most popular treats. Or spend the afternoon learning how to make chocolate – an indulgence you’d be missing out if you didn’t experience.

Nendaz sits on a sunny terrace in Switzerland’s Four Valleys ski region. The resort has grown around a traditional Swiss village of timbered houses and ancient barns. Though it offers impeccable skiing conditions in the winter months, the resort is still every bit as enjoyable in the summer months. From May to September you are most likely to experience good weather with pleasant average temperatures.
