Diamonds in the sky

Live a magical and convivial moment at high altitude! Several Saturday evenings during the summer, you have the opportunity to reach one of our restaurants at 2,200 meters to watch a sunset. The sky is colored with flamboyant colors until the last rays of the sun. The spectacle and the magnificent view will enchant you!
You will experience an unforgettable and convivial moment while tasting the traditional raclette of the Valais. Indeed, the typical menu consisting of a Valaisan plate (dried meat and cheese), unlimited raclettes and a sorbet, is included in the price.
Finally, you will take part in a small initiation to the exploration of the sky given by a passionate astronomer.
Please note that the initiation is in French only. However, the astronomer will be able to answer your questions in English.
