Valais offers almost endless possibilities for hiking in the mountains, with routes and trails to suit every ability. Considerable differences in altitude, narrow ridges, imposing gorges, historic cols: no matter which route you choose, the panoramic views are sure to take your breath away. 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.
Five days crossing between Valais and Berne, five days of spectacular views over the icy summits of Wildhorn, five days of pure nature. The Wildhorn Tour offers you days of extremely varied walking full of surprises: paths cut into the cliff, steep ascents up scree-covered slopes, a climb through loose stones, a descent down four or five vertical ladders in quick succession, lots of small mountain lakes, a walk amongst aconites and a few edelweiss, a panoramic view over the Plaine Morte glacier, Diablerets, Mont-Blanc, Grand Combin and the summits around Val d’Hérens, through a maze of white rocks and with lots of stunning waterfalls descending vertiginous walls.
Duration of hike: 4-5 days
