Bisse de Champex-Lac

The bisse de Champex-Lac, also known as the bisse du Petit Ruisseau, draws its water from the Durnand d'Arpette, at an altitude of 1,650 m, before flowing into the Lac de Champex, after a journey of around 1.5 km. Surrounded by alder forests and lush green pastures, this waterway probably dates back to the 15th century and offers breathtaking views of Catogne and the Dents du Midi. After his easy walk, quench your thirst, or sample the blueberry tart on the terrace at the Relais d'Arpette.
