Crans-Montana as if you were there
Virtual tour of the 125 years project
To mark the 125-years anniversary, 12 giant illuminated letters spelling Crans-Montana have been installed on the banks of Lake Grenon, at the foot of the Hotel du Parc hill, and on the Centenary Path, which links the centre of Montana and Crans. Replicas of these letters will also be found dotted around in natural surroundings, marking 12 of the most beautiful viewpoints in the region. So whilst walking between the valley and the glacier, you’ll come across these 12 letters together with a telescope, accompanied by video portraits of local celebrities, whose experiences and anecdotes will teach you even more about a theme closely related to each place.
For those who won’t have the chance to visit these little corners of paradise, it will be possible to visit these breathtaking 360° panoramas, from the village to Plaine Morte, via the most beautiful viewpoints of Crans-Montana. You will also meet local celebrities and hear their fascinating stories with the 125 YEARS project. The glacier, the ‘bisses’, golf, skiing, water or mountain pastures, don’t miss any of the 13 episodes which embody the wonderful diversity of Crans-Montana.
Chic and sporty beach
To make the most of the summer season, the Beach Club will be in operation at the Étang Long. Open from 11am until 9pm, those with energy to burn can take on beach volleyball, banana boating on the lake or cable wakeboarding. Deckchairs, swimming, restaurants and beach bars will be welcomed by visitors seeking rest and relaxation. Families will also discover the Water Games, an inflatable obstacle course on the lake.
Crans-Montana, a family favourite
Family Destination 2019-2021
Crans-Montana is THE ideal family destination in the heart of Valais. It is one of two destinations in French-speaking Switzerland to have been awarded the label “Family Destination 2019–2021” by the Swiss Tourism Federation.
Young children will not have time to become bored this summer because, among so many other attractions, they can discover the brand new Bibi’s Gardens. Crans-Montana’s favourite marmot has set up house here and welcomes children of all ages for a programme rich in free activities and events from May to September.
Centred around Bibi’s burrow, these gardens are a fantastic leisure centre for the entire family with basketball courts and floorball (unihockey), plus ping pong tables, electric cars and a brand new miniature golf course. Crans-Montana is proud to offer a splendid variety of open-air activities, including pedalo rides and paddle boarding on the lakes, leisure walks with strollers along irrigation canals, playgrounds as well as camps for children, the Fun Forest adventure park in the trees, the Swiss Model Railway Foundation and Bibi’s treasure hunt. These are all part of the activities for the very young.
Adolescents will also find plenty of wonderful things to do, including paintball, a wakeboarding park, beach volleyball, horse riding, a bike park, canyoning adventures, rock climbing, tennis, cinema, bowling, etc. which will leave them with magnificent memories of their holidays in the mountains.
