This uphill route to the spa resort of Ovronnaz begins at the heart of the vineyard overlooking the village of Leytron. The climb is fairly irregular, with some steep gradients to tackle in the first few kilometres. It then becomes steadier once you reach the village of Dugny. The climb gives you a chance to cast an admiring glance over central Valais, with an unobstructed view over the Rhône Valley and in particular on part of the Chamoson vineyard, the largest in Switzerland in terms of surface area. The road follows the winding course of the Salentse river and threads its way through pastures and spruce and pine forests. You’ll have many opportunities to admire the Grand Muveran along the way before finally arriving in Ovronnaz.
