Hikes

The Valais has a hike for everyone. Up high peaks, through fragrant larch forests, along watercourses, over suspended bridges, by mule paths or vineyard trails. Over 8000 kilometres of signposted hiking paths wait to be explored. Countless high routes and circuits lead through lush alpine meadows, across rushing mountain streams, past deep-blue tarns and up peaks with magnificent views. With a little luck, hikers may encounter marmots, chamois or mountain goats.

Pedestrian bridge hike to thermal springs
Leukerbad Leukerbad & surroundings Switzerland
Almost dramatic and still poetic - the imposing bridge path leads 600 meters into the Dala Gorge. Feel the cascading water’s force as you walk along moss-covered rock walls to 35-metre-high waterfall. The trail to the waterfall is wheelchair-accessible. Stairs then descend to the thermal water’s source, which was said to flow from paradise. Perfectly shaped and appearing almost artistically inspired, the pool lies in the Dala Gorge and fills visitors with a quiet spiritual energy. Pedestrian bridge hike to thermal springs
