On top of that, the Free Republic of Holidays also offers plenty of other winter sports opportunities such as sledging,
ice climbing, snowshoe trails, winter hiking, Bavarian curling, cross-country skiing and much more.
The Mediterranean climate, 300 days of sun, the wonderfully fresh and particulate-free air: the Saas Valley is unique. The four authentic mountain villages Saas-Fee, Saas-Grund, Saas-Almagell and Saas-Balen exude a magical Alpine charm, the wide range of restaurants from gourmet to fast food cater to all tastes, and party animals can make the most of the rich and varied night life.
