You can find many activities in and around Vals during the summer. The cable car stays operational during the summer and offers many gorgeous views of the surroundings. There are various options for hiking in the mountains and valleys, for example in the Valser valley itself. The 'Vals Berg-Wanderbus' (mountain-hiking shuttle) takes passengers to the many starting points of the hiking tours, amongst other neighboring valleys: Val Lumnezia, Safien Valley, Val di Blenio and the Rheinwald. One of the most appreciated routes is the Panorama-road to Zervreila. Vals is a central stop on the Big Walser Trail, which runs from Zermatt straight through the Alps to the Kleinwalser Valley in the region Vorarlberg. The Adula mountain range with its 50 mountain tops is a spectacular experience for mountain climbers, who visit the Valser valley. It is not unusual for people to search for crystals; the valley is known for its rare semi-precious stones and minerals. Water sports such as canoeing, kayaking (funjak) and rafting can be arranged in 'The Swiss Grand Canyon'. More info: http://kanuschule.ch/.
