Venture out into the valley which has beaten the historic record of cold temperatures in Switzerland: - 41.8°C!

Brrrr… -41.8°C: that was Switzerland’s lowest-ever temperature, and it was recorded here in 1987. Apart from Siberian temperatures, the valley features captivating scenery, cross-country ski runs and snowshoe trails galore, a delightful frozen lake and even a Cold Festival in February!
