The diversity of the Val d'Anniviers is highlighted by two villages and the high mountain path that links them. Overlooked by the highest peaks in the Valais, Grimentz stands out with its wooden houses festooned with flowers. Vercorin, on the other hand, lies on a sunny plateau overlooking the Rhone Valley. The panorama trail between the two towns runs along the western slopes of the Val d'Anniviers. Apart from a steep climb at the start and the descent to the finish, it follows a high-altitude route, from which spectacular views can be enjoyed. While Grimentz has trails devoted to everything from geraniums to local legends, Vercorin has a handful of art galleries and museums, including one dedicated to the painter Édouard Vallet, who lived in the village for many years. Events are held here every year, including R&Art (contemporary art installations) and Vercojazz.
