Welcome at the Lötschental

- the magic valley

The Lötschental is most certainly one of the most beautiful Valais valleys and nestles between the Bernese and Valais Alps in the UNESCO World Heritage Site Jungfrau-Aletsch. The valley is around 30 km long and is therefore the largest of the Valais side valleys north of the Rhone. The wild River Lonza that flows out of the Lang Glacier and meets the Rhone south of Gampel rushes the whole way down the Lötschental.
