St-Luc - Zinal

Zinal (1670,) remains a charming, welcoming and intimate resort. The fabulous trails around Zinal lead to the famed Kaiserkrone. From St-Luc we recommend taking to the funicular to Tignousa (2186m). A worthy destination, the Weisshorn hotel can be reached via the “Planetary Trail”, which depicts our solar system along the way. This gentle one-hour hike heads towards Barneuza Alp (2211m). The scenery gradually changes as you descend steeply towards Zinal. Count on about 45 minutes reach Zinal.
