Campsite Simplonblick, Valais
Simplonblick camp site is located in the stunning Swiss canton of Wallis, not far from the Simplon Pass which runs from Switzerland into Italy. 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!
This family camp site is truly recommended for anyone who enjoys countryside and tranquillity, even during a summer camping holiday! Raron is located in the Rhône valley at the foot of the imposing Alps. A fantastic area for hiking, mountain biking, mountain climbing or going on day trips by car. From here you can literally go in all directions.
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. There's a good restaurant where you can enjoy a meal on the terrace. You can also buy fresh bread at the campsite.
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. 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 railraod seems to appear from a tunnel. It's acutally 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 large amusement park in Switzerland.
