Saas Fee summer skiing holidays Self catering summer holiday rentals - chalets to rent in Saas Fee

Saas Fee summer holidays provide a different experience from the white snowy winters. Being so far south, despite the altitude, summer temperatures are what you would expect if you were sat on the beach in the Med.

This incredibly beautiful resort is packed with tourists during the summer who come to relax and enjoy the spectacular scenery, trek around the mountains, enjoy the cuisine and perhaps try some summer skiing on the Allalin glacier at 3600m.

Saas Fee summer skiing

The Saas Fee summer skiing area on the Allalin-glacier is impressive and is also home to one of the best summer freestyle parks in the Alps. This offers a super pipe as well as two lines of jumps, rails and boxes. The glacier caters for intermediate skiers and boarders during the summer skiing season and is a very popular venue for the national ski teams who come to practice before the winter season races.

Day Trips

Summer holidays in Saas Fee consist of long sunny days that can get surprisingly hot with temperatures often north of 30 degrees. This means you have that Mediterranean climate but being surrounded by mountains, glaciers and lakes means there is so much to see and do including walk around the Mattmark reservoir which has the highest natural dam in Europe and exploring the gorge from Saas Fee to Saas-Grund on suspended ropes. Some of our other favourites include...


A very pretty village in the next valley, Zermatt is packed with climbers, hikers and skiers during the summer. Ride the cable car up to Plateau Rosa on the glacier and have lunch under the Matterhorn but returning to Saas Fee.

Saas Fee is fortunate to have many alpine lakes which can be reached by gentle hiking trails and are ideal for picnics. One of the most popular summer holiday hang-ours is at Lake Kreuzboden where you have magnificent views of the 4000m peaks.
