A sparkle in the Alps

Glittering treasures hidden away in the heart of Europe, amidst impenetrable rocky walls and rugged passes, concealed among majestic and awe-inspiring mountains where eagles and ibexes reign supreme. Clear or coloured, pointy and solid, they have always symbolised strength and resistance. The Bedretto Valley has all this to offer, along with a wild, uncontaminated nature. The perfect place for a day out with the family, where you can even try the famous pastries.
