Altitude: 2003 Meters

Arolla in short

  • Ideal for beginners and children
  • Sporty, relaxing holiday destination
  • Quiet après-ski

Arolla is a typical Swiss mountain village located at 1998 meters. Both in winter and in the summer you can enjoy the perfect holiday here. It is a very small village with only a supermarket, post office, sports and souvenir shop. The village has no lift to the nearby Val d'Herens and skiing to the village is impossible but there are bus services. In Arolla you can find a total oasis of peace and quiet and a very hospitable population.

The slopes in Arolla in the Val d'Hérens ski area are all blue or red, so it is an ideal area for beginners and children. For the experts there is plenty to do with the many ski tours available. Not forgetting, of course, that heliskiing in Valais is permitted only in this ski resort and in Zermatt. In the valley there is plenty to do with a 19 kilometer trail for cross-country skiers and two beautiful hiking trails.
