A Beautiful Setting - Au Coeur des Montagnes
The last village at the end of Val d'Anniviers, Zinal has kept its authenticity and simplicity. Zinal is located at 1670m and is surrounded by the highest mountains of the Alps. Zinal is the starting point for many climbing circuits and summit ascents. The village is known to be the finish line for the Sierre- Zinal which takes place every summer in August. In winter, Zinal is a ski area with guaranteed snow cover and is linked to Grimentz (by the cable car Sorebois - Grimentz, which is also open in the summer).
The wide range of activities offered especially for children also makes Zinal the ideal destination for families and for holiday camps.
The villages of Grimentz, St Luc, Chandolin and Vercorin are in the same valley.
The town of Sierre, located at the entrance to Val d'Anniviers and 28km from Zinal, is the second sunniest town in Switzerland.
