Little known by the outside world, Zinal is a true mecca for outdoor enthusiasts. This is where the local Swiss come to tour glaciers, climb spectacular mountain passes, and perfect their powder turns. All of this is a million miles away from the masses of tourists that flock to the Valais’ better-known (and pricier!) resorts. It is very easy to fall for the laid-back charm of Zinal and it has become the destination of choice for outdoor enthusiasts throughout the year. The charming old village dates back to the 15th century and you will find the local bars and restaurants warm and welcoming.
