Well done. Look what authentic hosts in Belalp are offering to you on 9flats.
Popular accommodations in Belalp
The rat race is left far behind when you holiday in Belalp, a remote and picturesque mountain village deep in the folds of the Swiss Alps. There are no cars here – access is via a cable car from the nearby village of Blatten – so in winter the only sound you are likely to hear is the swish of a skier passing by. It is a small, select village untouched by mass tourism and few people get to stay here apart from the chalet owners and those in the know. With 9flats, however, it is possible to rent a holiday chalet in Belalp and experience what it is like to be surrounded by some of the most dramatic scenery on earth, to live like the locals do and to enjoy mountain life far away from the tourist crowds.
Snow and flowers around a Belalp holiday home
It’s a great alternative to couchsurfing because there is no sharing – you get exclusive use of a chalet that has been personally equipped and furnished by the owner. 9flats offers this unique holiday proposition in destinations all over the globe, from a sunny vacation apartment in Tampa to a chic holiday flat in Bangkok. The holiday homes in Belalp are set in a magical landscape of snow-topped mountains and valleys which are white with snow in winter and strewn with flowers in the summer. The stunning beauty of the place has earned it recognition as a UNESCO world heritage site, not least because Belalp overlooks the mighty Aletsch Glacier, the largest in the Alps.
Ski with the witches from a holiday chalet in Belalp
There is plenty to see and do for all the family from a vacation home in Belalp. In the winter there is skiing, snowboarding, sledging and snowshoe hiking, and if you are there at the right time you could watch or take part in the famous Witches’ Descent, a 12 km race involving skiers in costume who use broomsticks in place of ski poles. For children there is the Snow Kids Village where they can learn to ski safely in a fun environment. The mountains are no less of a playground in the summer months, with hiking and biking trails winding up towards the peaks and along the glacier’s edge. The 124 metre long suspension bridge from Belalp to Riederalp provides a thrilling glimpse of the Massa Gorge below for those with a head for heights, while a more relaxing experience can be found in the several spas and hot springs located in the area.
