The Edelweiss is a route ideal for people who have little experience or who wish to warm up before tackling the Androsace itinerary, located close by. Along the Edelweiss via ferrata, you can spot Switzerland’s iconic plant – and perhaps some of the wildlife of the Val de Bagnes, including ibex. The 900 rungs and nearly 800 metres of cable offer you a unique access to the summit of the ridge of the Monts de Cion, with glorious views of the Mont Fort, the Tortin Glacier and the valley.
