1 Day

All year




  • Discover a whole new world on this introduction to orienteering.
  • Enjoy the pleasure of discovering nature on your own.
  • Learn how to navigate using a topographic map and compass.


Would you like to know how to navigate across natural places? This introduction to orienteering is what you are looking for. If you don’t have any previous experience, this program near Verbier is perfect for you!

Live a full day of adventures, from learning how to navigate using a compass, to topographic map reading. So, you can learn how to find your way through mountains and different type of terrains.

Orienteering encompasses all those sports which require navigational skills. Therefore, you’ll learn how to get from one point to another, even through unfamiliar terrain.

Furthermore, the program is available all year round. Thus, you can practice during spring, summer or autumn on trekking paths. Or you can learn how to move around venturing off tracks during the winter. Each season has its own charm and challenges. For example, if you decide to join me during winter, I’ll teach you how to properly use snowshoes. And you’ll practice how to find trails that are not so easy to spot due to the snow.

Every morning we’ll go over the theory of card reading and using a compass on a map. Then, during the afternoon, we’ll put to test all our new skills on the field.

If you wish to join this unique experience, don’t hesitate and send me a request. Let me share with you my passion for nature, so you can later explore on your own.

Are you looking for a longer trip? You can also check this 5-day Val d’Anniviers Hiking Tour that I guide as well.

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 !
