An award-winning family-friendly destination

The Swiss tourist board awards the "Familien willkommen" – "Families welcome" – label to holiday destinations whose family-friendly services are tailored to the needs of families. The Aletsch Arena is one such destination: the region's infrastructure, activities, services and hospitality make it the ideal place for exciting and unforgettable family holidays.

Aletsch Arena, with its resorts of Riederalp, Bettmeralp and Fiesch-Eggishorn, is one of the 26 "Families welcome" destinations in Switzerland. Being named as a family-friendly holiday region is both an incentive and a challenge: the title is awarded for a period of 3 years, and compliance with the strict award criteria is monitored on a regular basis
