All Reviews
Nax, Balcony of the Sky, is located in Valais overlooking the gate to Val d'Hérens, a side valley to the Rhone-Valley. This charming mountain village is only 20 minutes from Sion, the picturesque and medieval capital of Kanton Valais. Sion has a rich historical background and is well-known for its warm hospitality. Nax is a paradise for skiers who come here to rediscover what is missing in many other winter resorts. The skiing adventure in the heart of untouched nature in the immensity of white landscape. Nax is a place lost in time where you can have relaxed holidays in the centre of natural wilderness. An old typical village with traditional architecture. You will enjoy discovering Nax and its natural and cultural sights as well as the many possibilities for hiking. At the top of the chair-lift Dzorniva the resort's restaurant is the best place to enjoy a good meal with friends or to taste one of the Valais specialities. The terrace with its 320 places is ideal for sunbathing over a drink you can order at the Snowbar.
