Vercorin

The charm and authenticity of the village of Vercorin will transport you to a bygone age. Its raccards (granaries), barns and haylofts, with their timbers blackened by time, will enchant you. The gateway to the nature reserve of the Vallon de Réchy, “the natural jewel of the region”, Vercorin is surrounded by nature and its panoramic views over the Alps and the Rhone valley make it an ideal viewing gallery over Valais.

Vercorin is a medium-sized ski resort located in the commune of Chalais. Situated at an altitude of 1'330m, this mountain village has preserved its former charm.

Summer and winter alike, Vercorin is an ideal place to discover nature and enjoy various activities in a magnificent environment.
