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.

This is the perfect hike for surefooted nature lovers. In half a day, you'll be treated to a little bit of everything, from dramatic rocky landscapes, rushing alpine rivers and shady forest paths to the flowering expanses of sunny pastures, dotted with flocks of sheep and traditional wooden chalets.
