Festival  Etoile Bella Lui

Family - Carpe Diem

The days are getting shorter, the temperatures are dropping, and the first snowflakes are appearing. It's the beginning of the most magical of seasons. The Etoile Bella Lui Festival invites you to discover the magic of winter by the light of the lantern path, in the heart of Crans-Montana. Based on the tale of "The Shepherd and the Bella Lui Star", the festival is dedicated to the enchantment and lights of winter. In a family-friendly spirit, explore the pristine natural areas around the centre of Crans-Montana by walking the lantern trail between Lake Moubra and Etang Long.


In the streets of the snow-covered village, winter takes on the delicious taste of local produce which is highlighted by our chefs, artisans and exceptional wine producers. A gourmet area that invites you to share and enjoy an aperitif around a central fireplace. A lantern trail, storytelling walks, an area dedicated to terroir, fire shows, gourmet chalets, concerts and above all exceptional video mapping shows on Etang Long ... what better way to enjoy the holiday season and the magical moments it brings? As you can see, between 2 December 2022 and 8 January 2023, the Etoile Bella Lui will light up the holiday season with an innovative festival dedicated to the magic of winter in the mountains.
