The summer in the heart of the Swiss Alps is full of beauty and sunshine. Central Valais is renowned for having over 300 days of sunshine every year. This plus the mountains provide the perfect setting for a range of summer activities and sports. All are within easy reach of Guarda Golf Hotel & Residences and can be arranged or recommended by our concierge.
A round of golf played in the Swiss Alps is surely unforgettable and with 6 different golf courses within 30 minutes of the hotel, there is plenty of choice. The 18-hole golf course, Severiano Ballesteros, located just two minutes from the hotel is, of course, the most famous, with the Omega European Masters played there every year.
Crans-Montana is one of the most famous ski resorts in the world and has been popular for winter activities for over 100 years. Far beyond a simple skiing holiday, the resort has much more to offer and diversifies every year from winter hiking options to husky sledding and heliskiing.
140 km of ski pistes for all levels, 26 km of cross-country skiing, a snow park of 10,000 square metres and a snow garden for the little ones are all elements that make up one of the most famous ski resorts in the world. We will happily arrange any activities and organise complimentary private transfers.
Every summer since 1948, the most famous golf tournament of Europe, the Omega European Masters, has taken place in Crans-Montana (when it was still named the Swiss Open). Every year, the festive atmosphere of this beautiful resort welcomes some of the biggest names from around the world. The next edition will take place from 25th until 28th August 2022.
We cannot talk about Crans-Montana without mentioning shopping. Many of the world’s luxury brands have found their home here, including Louis Vuitton, Boggi, Hermès and more, as well as, of course, wide range of shops for sportswear and sporting equipment and other renowned names, such as La Durée.
