Toboggan run of Champex-Lac
Starting at the summit of La Breya in Champex-Lac, children of all ages can enjoy this 5km sledge run, guaranteed to be a fun and memorable experience! The sledge run crosses the majestic setting of the Arpette valley as well as a large forest of firs, larches, arolla pines and pine trees. The starting point of the sledge run is at the top of the chairlift, where the 360° panorama deserves a few moments of appreciation. If the weather allows, enjoy the magnificent panorama and breathtaking view of the Grand-Combin massif, Mount Vélan and Lake Geneva from the beautiful terrace. After leaving the top of the chairlift, the piste heads down towards the Arpette valley, a nature reserve at the heart of one of the rare wild valleys of the Valais Alps. At the end of summer, hikers and foragers enjoy the many blueberry bushes in the Val d’Arpette. The Relais d'Arpette, located next to the piste, is a place to rest and enjoy the natural setting. The piste then rejoins the top of the La Breya chairlift in Champex. The village is aptly nicknamed “little Swiss Canada” thanks to its vast forests, lake and traditional wooden chalets.
