In just a few kilometres, this route offers the chance to enjoy a variety of natural settings, including prairies, forests and alpine panoramas. It makes for a challenging climb, though, so you'll need to be in good physical shape to tackle it. Starting from Bovernier, the route passes through the Durnand gorges during its first few kilometres before climbing gradually towards Champex and offering a superb panoramic view dominated by the Catogne and Mont Dolent. At the summit, the village of Champex-Lac will invite you to stop for a well-deserved break.
