Bourg St Bernard to Champex guided hiking tour


Join UIMLA mountain leader Sarah on this fantastic 3-day hike in the Swiss Alps from Bourg St Bernard to Champex. Bring your children along!


3 Days

Jun - Aug


This guided hiking tour from Bourg St Bernard to Champex in the Swiss Alps is a great option for families.

You’ll get to enjoy a few lovely days in nature together! Taking your children on a mountain trip is a great way to teach them about nature and the outdoors.

During these 3 days, I’ll propose several games adapted to the younger members of the family. We’ll also visit a museum and the Botanical Gardens at Champex, among other fun activities.

The whole family will enjoy stunning views of the Swiss Alps. Moreover, the charming little villages along the way will only add to a fantastic experience!

All members of the family need to be able to walk between 4 and 5 hours per day to participate in this hiking tour. We will be staying at a hospice on the first night and at a mountain hut on the second night.

I can guarantee that you’ll all have an excellent time. You’ll go back home feeling renewed. So contact me now and I’ll be happy to be your guide around this beautiful area that I know so well! I can also adapt this program to your wishes, so don’t hesitate to ask.

About the guide

Guide profile image


Mountain Leader

Setting off on an adventure on a whim, without a precise plan, walking according to desires and emotions, pushing further to discover what a summit or a ridge reveals. Trained as a business lawyer, then manager of a large sports store, biathlete and trail runner, it was my job as a guide that ultimately allowed me to establish a more structured and secure framework for my wanderings, but without ever losing my wonder and my curiosity. It is with this state of mind that today I like to travel and share the mountains here and elsewhere, preferably roaming, in order to give us time to soak up the landscapes which evolve over time, days and seasons.

I will always be happy to set off on the classic tours, but above all I strive to guide you off the beaten paths.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
