Ptarmigan Health Destinations is transforming Switzerland’s Evolène Valley. Sitting amidst some of the highest mountains in the Alps and nestled between the resorts of Verbier and Zermatt, the group is creating a new destination for active living and advanced healthcare.
The world-renowned management team has reaped the benefits of working in partnership with the local community. The redevelopment of Evolène Valley – and Ptarmigan Health Destinations’ vision and ethos – is grounded in the principles of social, economic and environmental sustainability.
The destination will comprise Evolène Santé, a medical village directed by specialists in their fields; the Grand Hôtel & Kurhaus, an 1896 heritage hotel scheduled for renovation to create an exclusive retreat; and the transformation of a 200 year old shepherds’ hamlet, perched atop an 800 foot cliff. Surrounded by the mountainous, wooded and glacial wilderness of the Swiss Alps, the luxury health retreat will be complemented by high-altitude sports and adventure pursuits.
Combining the beauty of this high altitude region with globally-renowned medical expertise and luxury lodgings, the redevelopment will provide experiences that integrate with and augment the lives of our clients. Similarly, the architecture, infrastructure, development and operations at Evolène Valley will integrate with and enhance the natural environment.
