The Valais village of Fiesch on the sunny side of the Rhone valley is located in the stepped Upper Goms valley, just at the entrance to the Fiescher valley. This family-friendly resort is the ideal starting point for excursions into the area round the Aletsch Glacier, the Goms Valley, over alpine passes and into the little town of Brig.
Fiesch is situated on a low hill on the sunny side of the valley of the upper Rhone, where it is met by the Fiescher valley. In the old part of the village you can see the typical weathered houses of the Valais. In the heart of the forest on the edge of the village is the well-known "Fiesch Sport and Leisure Centre", offering accommodation for groups, professional and amateur sportsmen and women, and numerous sport and leisure facilities such as an indoor pool, sports halls, outdoor climbing wall etc.
