The Glacier Hotel Grawand will be closed from 17th April until the beginning of December due to construction work on the cable car.


Tips for your stay on the Val Senales Glacier

Scores of top athletes set out year after year to complete their preparatory phase in altitude training on the Val Senales Glacier. And for a good reason: A stay at altitude not only frees the mind, it also has a positive effect on the entire body. You will soon notice that when you spend your holidays at our hotel in Val Senales.

With every metre of altitude, the air literally gets thinner. The decrease in pressure and oxygen content affects practically all bodily functions. Slight headaches, a queasy feeling in the stomach, shortness of breath, slight dizziness and insomnia are completely normal and not a cause for concern, because the body has to get used to the altitude. Most of the time, the symptoms go away after a few hours, provided you give your body the rest it needs to acclimatise. You have plenty of opportunities to do that. How about a breather on the sun terrace of our glacier hotel?

Your body will be running at full speed no time. A stay at an altitude of 3,212 metres increases the production of red blood cells. The result: More oxygen is transported through your body and muscles, which leads to a significant increase in performance. In addition, the metabolism of fat is stimulated and the regeneration time after exercise is shortened. Even after a short time at 3,000 metres, you will feel fitter than ever before.

  • Take it easy, the mountains won't run away from you. After arriving, sit on the terrace, admire the panorama and give your body a break.
  • Drink plenty of water: You need one litre of fluid more for every 1,000 metres, because your body loses more water due to more intensive breathing.
  • Make sure you have a sufficient supply of electrolytes.
  • Eat a light meal. Our kitchen team knows what you need at altitude and will prepare tasty meals that are good for you.
  • Avoid the sauna and alcohol on the first day.
  • Be sure to consult a doctor before your arrival if you suffer from cardiovascular diseases.
