The village is beautiful, and is exactly what you want when skiing in the alps. Top marks for character. The skiing is great. No doubt. But when you look at the cost of a ski ticket for a day, and compare it to Laax, there...More

Saas-Fee Switzerland is definitely a summer winter sports paradise. You can go glacier skiing (which is what I was doing), hiking, mountain bike riding or try one of the other activities. Such a beautiful resort in Summer, I would wander around in the afternoon after...More

I came for a 5 day ski holiday. After saas fees closed the resort for 2 days. They refused to give a refund. This resort does not care about the people who keep it going, its customers. Just because they are one of the few...More

Summer review: We knew we wanted to hike and also get a feel of Switzerland on our honeymoon. What we didn't know was that we'd end up finding Wonderland. The sights are astonishing, sunrises leave you breathless, the peaks are impressive to say the least,...More

Amazing ski resort, deserves the name “Pearl of the Alps”! Skied with our 9 year old who is a beginner-intermediate skier and had plenty of skiable runs. Rented skis in town and walked to resort. Awesome lodges with many food choices.
