There are over 750km of way-marked footpaths, hiking and walking trails between Switzerland and France ranging from family-friendly riverside strolls through to tougher overnight treks staying in mountain refuge huts.

To experience the flora, fauna and water features of the mountains, the cable cars operate from July to September (contact us for exact operating dates), making the high mountains available to recreational hikers and walkers. Why not enjoy a delicious lunch in one of the rustic refuges then walk down the mountain and stop for a refreshing dip in the River Dranse.
