I’ve previously written about Switzerland’s nation-wide Helsana Trails, marked and mapped to encourage people to get out and get fit. Saas-Fee’s, the first in the canton of Valais, features eight signposts spread over an easy 5-km loop gives Nordic Walkers, walkers and runners useful tips, including Nordic Walking tips. The full distance of the Helsana Nordic Walking Trail is a longer, more challenging loop of more than 15 km from Saas-Fee through Saas-Almagell, Saas-Grund and back to Saas-Fee.
