Verbier, a ski resort nestled in the Swiss Alps, allows you to admire the Matterhorn and Mont-Blanc, while riding on the same slopes as some of the world’s best freeriders. They meet every year for the Verbier Xtreme at the legendary Bec des Rosses, which sits atop the 410 km of pistes in the 4 Vallée ski area that together form Bruson, La Tzoumaz, Veysonnaz, Thyon and Nendaz.
Thanks to the altitude of the ski area and its snow cover, whether you book early or late in the season, you will be delighted.
We have chosen for you the best things to experience and discover during your visit :
1. Culinary pleasures
In Verbier, some sixty renowned restaurants will delight and satisfy your taste buds at all times. To start the day smoothly, why not treat yourself to a chocolate-y breakfast, in the heart of the resort, at the Galerie du Chocolat? And then, for a lunch with a view, you can go to the ‘Igloo du Mont-Fort’ where you can marvel at the Matterhorn, the Mont-Blanc and the Jungfrau. For lunch, we invite you to try the ‘Délices du Grenier’ restaurant or a fondue, at ‘la Marmotte’, with friends or family, while admiring the panorama. Alternatively, you can go to ‘L’Ecurie’ in the Verbier Centre, which prepares delicious simmered dishes, accompanied by excellent wines. The service here is excellent and friendly while being COVID-compatible.
In the evening, for a refined dinner, book a table at the Michelin-starred restaurant ‘La Table d’Adrien’, where the dishes vary according to the season. From tagliolini with chocolate and truffle, to braised rack of lamb from the Val de Bagnes, your palate will be flattered.
2. Sensations : skiing, paragliding and Montfort ziplining
Verbier has a lot to offer to thrill-seekers. With a breathtaking view of the Alps and the Mont-Blanc and Combins mountains, Verbier is a fantastic playground for sports enthusiasts.
The reputation of the ski area is well established, so we recommend paragliding or a zip-line descent – the highest in Europe – of 1.4 km, at 100 km/h, above the Tortin glacier. Thrills guaranteed!
Try a unique experience when you book at the newly renovated Hotel de Verbier, which opens in November 2020. You will live in a comfortable cocoon with all the amenities: ski lockers, boot warmers, mountain concierge to answer all your requests. For those with a sweet tooth, the hotel’s restaurant, La Nonna, is the latest addition to Verbier’s bar-restaurant offering an Italian menu. Managed by the team from ‘Le Rouge’, it offers a wide range of dishes from breakfasts to dinners and drinks, as well as quality service. Of course, this jewel of a hotel also has a Spa with jacuzzi, hammam, sauna and gym. All of this will ensure that you have an unforgettable stay.
Verbier is also an invitation to relaxation and fun. This resort offers many possibilities for outdoor sports and snow sports enthusiasts, but also allows you to rest in complete tranquillity. In addition to the top-of-the-range chalets with their own private spa, you can recharge your body and soul in independent hotels and spas. We recommend the W hotel and the Experimental Spa for total relaxation.
5. The great outdoors
For those legs that sting and who unfortunately can no longer travel – internationally – as much it is possible to get away from the noise, hustle and bustle of city life, to explore the marked mountain trails on foot or by electric bike. Discovering new sumptuous landscapes, enjoying the Valais sunshine, recharging one’s batteries – these are the keywords for the end of 2020. With more than 950 km of signposted trails, we offer you 7 of them for your mental and physical well-being here: The 7 Walks of Verbier.
This year, take advantage of the opportunity to soak up the sun and to get your dose of Vitamin D in Verbier. Events and shops offer covid-compatible services to ensure a peaceful stay that will do you the most good.
