Gspon

The traffic-free village of Gspon is an ideal starting point for both leisurely and challenging hikes. This is where the highest still operating irrigation channels can be found. Two ski lifts open in winter for downhill skiers.
No road leads to the idyllic village of Gspon at an altitude of 1899 metres. Access is by cableway from Stalden via Staldenried. The landmark of this tranquil village with a population of 585 is the St. Anna Chapel, built in 1691. The unspoilt landscape is ideal for hikes in all degrees of difficulty.

The Bischofwäg leading from Staldenried through pine forest and the Breiterbach Gorge to Visperterminen was the path along which the bishop of Sion travelled. Visperterminen has the highest vineyard in Europe on a sheltered slope at an altitude of 1150 metres. A green sign-posted viniculture theme path starts at Visp railway station. The Suonen hiking trail to Finileri runs alongside the highest still operating irrigation channels in Europe. Running water, scented forests and beautiful alp pastures transform this circuit path into a delight for the senses. A more challenging trail leads from Gspon via the Gebidum and Bistinen Passes to the Simplon Pass.

There are facilities for downhill skiing in winter. The tranquil, snowbound landscape can also be explored on snowshoes.

Highlights

  • Highest still operating irrigation channels in Switzerland
  • Hiking and climbing routes in all degrees of difficulty. Snowshoe trekking in winter
  • St. Anna Chapel, built in 1691
