What better way to escape than at the heart of this Alpine paradise? With a little luck, you might be accompanied along the way by the discreet presence of ibex or deer – or even a golden eagle. Succumb to all the charm of a mountain hike in the land of four-thousanders.
4 Vallées Tour
This hike offers both an alpine path at the foot of tall mountains and superb walks along the waterways of central Valais. The alpine part leads us through a world of green mountain pastures, above the forests, where we come upon lots of welcoming cabanes, go through a series of passes culminating at nearly 3,000 metres (Col de Prafleuri), admire the impressive Grande Dixence dam and many mountain lakes. The Bisse de Saxon leads you, above Isérables and Nendaz, to the Cleuson dam.
Duration of hike: 4-5 days
