  • Spend the day trekking around the Salanfe lake at the foot of the Dents du Midi.
  • Challenge yourself as you reach altitudes exceeding 2000 meters.
  • Marvel at the beauty of the Swiss Alps and Valais throughout the trek.


Throughout the Swiss Alps there are a number of incredible hiking trails. And on this full day trip, you will get to trek around the gorgeous Salanfe lake which rests at the foot of the breathtaking Dents du Midi mountain (3,257m).

There is nothing quite like high altitude bodies of water. They glimmer with a distinct, glacial blue. And the Salanfe lake, at an altitude of 1,909 meters is no exception. Throughout this hike you will get to constantly gaze at this tremendous reservoir, as well as the lovely landscape that surrounds it. And whenever you look up, you will see the unmistakable, jagged summits of the Dents du Midi.

This trek will last approximately 6-7 hours, and we will cover nearly 16 kilometers. The route is also quite difficult at points. In particular, when we reach the highest altitude point, which is approximately 2,200 meters, the path becomes arduous. As a result, while not an absolute requirement, you should have prior mountainous hiking experience. You should also be in good physical condition. However, despite the difficulties, the views you will get of the Salanfe lake, the Dents du Midi, as well as the wonderful scenery of Valais will make the challenge well worth it.

Are you looking for a long, beautiful and challenging trek through the Swiss Alps? Then this full day hike around the Salanfe lake will absolutely satisfy you.  To enjoy it for yourself, just send us a request. We look forward to guiding you.

We can also lead you on an easier hike on the wonderful Matterhorn trail, where you can see the incredible peak up close, from many different viewpoints.

What people are saying about ES Adventure Guides



Very user friendly platform with timely responses from Explore Share representatives. The trip itself with Tom from Alps Adventures was awesome and ensure that we had an experience that was 100% what we wanted. Recommend both the platform and the guide. Thanks to all for arranging and delivering so well.


I had am amazing time during the 1-day off-piste training course at Hoch-Ybrig. Urs, our main mountain guide, was very helpful in answering my queries before the course, and Lupe from explore-share was helpful in selecting the course. We had 3 groups under Urs, Mario and Patrick, and I was in the group with Patrick. He gave us a lot of nice tips and individualized video analysis. He made a special effort to convey everything in English, since I don't know German. All the participants were very helpful and friendly too! The course is good value for money as skis are included for the weekend in the course price.
