Escape to a simpler life with Karin and Dani


Discover Wallis, at an altitude of 1500 m, in the beautiful Lötschental. The region exudes a charm all of its own, with wooden houses blackened by the sun and the and the typical Wallis granaries. The farm, which was certified organic in 2004 as the first farm in the Lötschental, consists of a single-family house with an outbuilding where Karin and Dani Ritler raise sheep and chickens here. The rustic furnished tents are located on the farm’s meadow and offer an unforgettable view of the imposing Lötschental mountains.

The breathtaking Swiss mountain world

In Wallis, the best way to explore the surroundings is on foot. A hike to the Wiler will be rewarded with a visit to the leisure centre with mini golf and a playground. There is also a cheese dairy and a cable car there. Cyclists will find ideal options from easy tours to mountain bike trails. The Lötschentaler Höhenweg (UNESCO World Heritage Site) offers guided mountain tours. The World Nature Forum (WNF) in Naters, a worldwide unique centre of the UNESCO World Heritage Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch, with interactive presentations on the theme of the Alps, can be reached within an hour.

    Pizza Night

    The farmer will usually fire up the pizza oven during your stay. Everyone gathers round to tell their stories of the day’s adventures and invent pizza toppings you’ll never find on the high street

    Ask the Farmer

    The farm tour is a must if it’s on offer. But you don’t wait till then. The farmer will be delighted to tell you more about how what goes on at the farm at any time.

    The Farm Shop

    It’s great for the basics and usually even better for local produce and low food miles. And every Feather Down farm shop operates on an honesty basis.
