about the region

The Val d’Anniviers is a mountain destination located in Valais in the heart of the Swiss Alps with picturesque villages and 4,000 m peaks. This valley is a paradise for nature lovers looking for fun and unique experiences and those who love activities in the great outdoors. This valley is also

home to a collection of villages. Between charm, authenticity and nature: each of them captivate you with its specific features and unique character.

Outdoor Adventure is my favorite! Let me take you on adventure in the mountains. Into the wilderness and the majesty of the mountains.

After snow shoeing through a wild terrain, we will explore glacial ice cave  and then return to go to another part of the valley where different peaks and historical hotel awaits.

Ruta has done her first hike back in 2013- she then realized that the real life is not happening in the indoor- office environment but rather outside.

This made her realize that she was missing something important in her life- connection with Nature. Since then, most of her time she spends outside- climbing, hiking, wild camping, walking in the forests, parks and other natural places. She has become hiking ‚guru‘ and is now passionate to share the most beautiful places in the Swiss Alps with the others. During her outings she invites participants to experience nature differently: through mindfulness, nature connection practices & human element.

Retreat participants often say that Ruta's passion for Nature is contagious.

Ruta is a professional mountain leader ( Association of Mountain Guides in Switzerland), neuro-coach (Neuroleadership Institute, London), and forest therapy guide (Association of Nature and Forest Therapy, USA). 

By creating Be Outside Coaching movement, she has connected her 2 major passions: activities outside and human development. Be Outside Coaching delivers immersive and holistic Nature experiences in the different corners of the Swiss Alps.

Be Outside. Be Authentic. Be You
