Tour description

The Suonen Trail tells the story of days gone by through the ancient Valais water channels – the Suonen. These channels transported much-needed water via ditches and wooden pipes to the region’s meadows and gardens. The kilometre-long pipelines were created as a solution to water shortage, and proved to be an inventive and effective idea. On this trail, hikers learn all about the cultural history of these constructions. The new bridge over the Almagellerbach stream and the Heuwete and Moosgufer sections of the valley’s old water channels make this a beautiful, picturesque walk. So hikers can simply relax and let the water guide the way.

The Suonen Trail starts at the valley station of the Saas-Almagell cableway and sets off in a north-easterly direction. The first third of the hike follows signposts for “Zum Berg” and leads through Spisswald to the new bridge over the Almagellerbach stream. Here, hikers have a wonderful view across the village of Saas-Almagell and the Mattmark dam. Leaving the bridge, hikers follow the trail as it passes under the Moosgufer to the hamlet of Zum Moos and then over the valley road past Unter den Bodmen, Zer Brigge and Ze Laubinu until it reaches Saas Grund. The trail ends in the Gasse area of Saas-Grund, close to Postplatz.


Pay attention to the Postauto bus timetable.
