Leukerbad

One of the biggest spa resorts in Switzerland

Located in the canton of Valais, Leukerbad is well known for its thermal springs, making it a popular destination for wellness and sports enthusiasts. With nearly 3.9 million litres of hot water gushing from 65 thermal springs each day, this is the perfect destination for revitalization and relaxation. The town itself is small and attractive, with a reasonable choice of restaurants and bars as well as a wide range of accommodation.

The ski area (Torrent-Bahnen) is small yet exhilarating, offering 52 km of groomed slopes ranging in altitude from 1411 metres to 2610 metres. There is plenty of variety to suit all abilities, although the majority of the slopes are categorised as reds and blacks. Freeriders can enjoy 6 km of yellow slopes and there’s also a fun park with three kickers, four rails and several other adrenaline-inducing obstacles.

A year-round resort, Leukerbad is popular in summer and winter

Leukerbad has plenty of other winter activities to explore, from winter hiking and snowshoeing to sledging and cross country skiing. Snowkiting on the Daubensee lake is also a popular activity. The Sportarena in Leukerbad has its own ice rink where you can try your hand at ice hockey, curling and figure skating.

Summer in Leukerbad is just as popular, with over 200 km of well-marked hiking trails to discover and 20 signposted mountain bike routes. Climbing enthusiasts can take on Switzerland’s longest via ferrata, comprising 216 metres of ladders and over 2,000 metres of steel cable, on the rock face of the Daubenhorn. Fishing is permitted on the Dala river and 18 km from Leukerbad is an 18-hole golf course.
