Simplonblick

Switzerland - Wallis - Raron

Camping Simplonblick

Snowy peaks in front of you. Huge mountains behind you. The beautiful Alpine greenery everywhere. The view from camping Simplonblick is a fairy tale. Here you can completely unwind. But not for too long. You didn't take those hiking shoes for nothing.

Why camping Simplonblick ?

  • There's a great view of the Simplon pass - one of the most beautiful mountain passes in the Alps.
  • The campsite is a good base for exploring the surrounding area, by bus, train, car or on foot. The local valley train station of Unterbach-Eischoll is just a few minutes away. You can hire bikes for free there at the train station in Raron!
  • There's a good restaurant where you can enjoy a meal on the terrace. You can also buy fresh bread at the campsite.
  • Relax around the swimming pool, or on the sunbathing lawn where there's a playground for young children. The 4 trampolines are big favourites, as is the giant chess board and 2 jeu de boules pitches.

Tip from the specialist:

"Very well maintained campsite with a nice view over Simplon pass. Good base for mountaineering to Leukerbad and the Aletsch glacier which is the longest in Europe."

The surrounding area of Simplonblick

The heart of the Wallis region is a mix of culture and climate zones, and the sunniest area of Switzerland. You'll find an array of Mediterranean flora, vineyards and year-round glaciers.

Some tips for your holiday at Simplonblick in Raron

  • A view at the Aletsch glacier, the biggest and most imposing glacier in Europe, is truly breathtaking. If you pass Brig, take a cable car ride to the winter sport villages of Riederalp and Bettmeralp where you can walk along the Alersch glacier.
  • High in the mountains above the village of Raron, a small model railroad seems to appear from a tunnel. It's actually a real train that goes from Bern to Italy and slowly travels towards the bottom valley.
  • A road leads to the health resort of Leukerbad from Leuk village. It's an ideal base to enjoy wonderful mountain walking trips.
  • The themepark of Happyland in Granges (between Sierre and Sion) is just a 30 minute drive away. This is a largest amusment park in Switzerland.
  • Do you like a challenging hike and are not afraid of heights? Then Switzerland has the ideal spot for you! The Charles Kuonen Hängebrücke. The world's longest pedestrian bridge at 494 metres long and 85 metres high. Wow what a view!
