Parcours Bisse de Champex
Exposed to the north and often covered in deep snow, this trail leads to the beginning of the Val d’Arpette, on to the Relais d’Arpette and then down along the Champex bisse.

The route will allow you to discover the unspoilt beauty of the Val d’Arpette, a small, protected valley near Champex-Lac. The Relais d’Arpette hotel and restaurant, ideally situated halfway along the path, is the ideal spot for a well-earned break directly opposite the Col des Ecandies, a very popular ski touring route. The Durnand river rises in the Val d'Arpette and flows through the famous Gorges du Durnand towards Martigny. After this pleasant break, return along the right side of the Champex-Lac bisse, before crossing over to the left bank, an idyllic stretch accompanied by the soothing sound of the water as you make your way back to the bottom of the slopes and La Breya chairlift.
