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.
The wine trail leads through the Valais vineyards from Martigny to Leuk. The trail winds gently up and down through this area, passing through carefully cultivated vineyards, historic locations and small wine producing villages that offer wine tasting. Wines can be tasted without appointment at many points along the route. This unique bike trail is the perfect way to discover the Valais region and its vineyards.
