Not specified


3 Days

Jun, Jul, 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.

August, 2015

Super randonnée en famille avec Sarah, une accompagnatrice extra, ayant mille tours dans son sac pour motiver et amuser les plus jeunes. En plus de l’excellente ambiance, nous avons eu la chance de voir des paysages magnifiques sur le Valais. Et puis quel plaisir de passer une nuit en refuge avec ses enfants. Merci Sarah, nous reviendrons !
