Intact Nature Area

One of "Switzerland's last remaining intact nature areas"!

In 2013, the renowned Swiss consumers magazine "Beobachter" listed the Simplon Region as one of Switzerland last remaining intact natural areas - along with prominent places like the Unesco World Heritage Site Jungfrau-Aletsch-Simplon or the Swiss National Park (the authors specifically mentioned the two valleys Zwischbergental and Laggintal).

"A11 Simplon/Zwischbergental/Nanztal
Rund um den Simplon laden mehrere wenig bevölkerte, wilde Täler und Alpschaften zu ausgedehnten Wanderungen ein. Besonders artenreich und wild sind das Zwischbergental und das Laggintal an der Simplon-Südseite.
Übernachtet werden kann zum Beispiel in SAC-Hütten oder in Simplon-Dorf."
(Beobachter)

SRF bi de Lüt - Wunderland

Im Sommer 2014 war das Schweizer Fernsehen zu Besuch in der Simplon Region. "Viel mehr als nur ein Alpenpass" sei der Simplon, resümiert das SRF. "Wer anstatt über den Pass lieber durch den Simplontunnel fährt, verpasst einiges. Abseits der Passstrasse gibt es atemberaubende Bergkulissen und unberührte Landschaften zu entdecken."
