Golf : Dreaming about playing golf in sun drenched plateaus or courses surrounded by vineyards? Then Crans-Montana is your destination. This city offers some wonderful golf courses like Valais, Severiano Ballestero courses and other popular golf courses. Valais as the Mecca of this sport is a natural golf course that has attracted people from various parts of the world.


Walking Tours : Discover the pleasure of walking through more than 280 kms of marked routes following streams, around mountain lakes, in villages or up the peaks, surrounded constantly by a breathtaking Alpine panorama. Nature opens out her chest of treasures to enchant you with a magical world.

Curling : It is often compared to lawn bowling on ice. The unique feature of the game is the use of brooms to sweep the ice. It is played on sheets of ice in a rink. Curling can best be described as lawn bowling on ice. Instead of rolling balls, however, the curler slides stones down the ice. A curling stone has a maximum diameter of 36 inches and can weigh no more than 44 pounds. It is concave on the bottom to promote a cleaner slide down the ice. Rather than push the curling stone, the player attaches a handle at the top to facilitate the release of the stone. Crans-Montana has an outdoor curling arena available to the public almost daily, though September to mid March would be the best season. It’s a national pastime in Switzerland.

Mountain Biking : Crans-Montana has 120 Kms of mountain bike tracks with 8 varied circuits. Beginners are advised to start with the easy circuit following medium difficult routs that does not require much effort. For experts the most difficult circuit would be the most thrilling one that would take the adventurous biker through the forests, slopes and mountains with memories of a wonderful experience.
