In the Swiss Alps you can spend your holiday skiing or relaxing in the thermal spa. They are a perfect combination of sport and relaxation.
Leukerbad is located in a wild rocky landscape at the end of a mountain road that winds through the Rhone Valley. The town is surrounded by the Alps, but there is no need to worry about avalanches. The thermal springs found here attract thousands of tourists every year.
The local public and private pools use over four million liters of thermal water with a temperature of 51 degrees Celsius. You will find the best wellness equipment.
The best and largest spa complexes include Burgerbad and Alpentherme, where you can relax in several swimming pools. Burgerbad Spa is more suitable for families with children, who look more like an aquapark with endless water slides, massage jets.
The Lindner Alpentherme spa offers much more privacy. Here you can enjoy saunas, massages, swimming pools and wellness treatments. You can watch the snow-capped mountain peaks or even go skiing while bathing.
World for skiers
Have you enjoyed the spa? Then head to the Torrent ski area. It provides many slopes of various difficulty levels. A cable car takes you to the slopes. You can find here not only as skiers, but also with a snowboard in the fun park. There is also a children’s club and a groomed winter hiking trail.
There are over fifty kilometers of slopes, including those that run the World Cup downhill. The ski slopes are located on alpine meadows, so you only need a small amount of snow to ski. The ski season lasts until about mid-April thanks to artificial snow. Buy yours.
