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.
The Wildstrubel Tour starts at Crans-Montana, tourist resort and sunny plateau at 1,500 metres altitude, and sets off towards the east. This tour brings us first of all to a panoramic summit, Mont Bonvin. Following the path of ancient peasants, we return to the stadium of the Alps, Leukerbad, the biggest spa in Europe surrounded by impressive rock walls. At Lötschental with its typical masks we climb the Lötschenpass, the oldest pass between Valais and Berne, a really interesting geological area with exceptional flora and fauna. The descent to Kandersteg reveals a wild and romantic valley. We return to Valais via Lenk and Iffigenalp taking us to the Rawyl pass.
Duration of hike: 6-8 days
