Are you looking for a demanding hike in a beautiful natural area? Then this 1-day program around Mauvoisin Lake is perfect for you.

Situated in Val de Bagnes, in the Canton of Valais, Mauvoisin Lake is a reservoir in the middle of a breathtaking natural environment.

On this trip, we’ll take a trail that will lead us through the valley as well as across the construction of the dam. During the hike, we’ll explore the Giétro Glacier and learn about its history. In addition, we’ll discover different natural spots such as Lac de Tsofeiret and Col de Tsofeiret. Another highlight of the trip will be to see its alpine flora and its variety of animals, including ibex, marmots and chamois. And, of course, don’t forget the breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains!

Please, take into account that this program is difficult. It will be a long hike with an elevation gain of around 900 meters. That’s why it’s mandatory to have previous hiking experience as well as a very good level of fitness.

If you find this program interesting, all you have to do is send the request and make your reservation. I’m sure it will be an experience you’ll never forget.

You can also take a look at this hiking program that I lead in Sentier de Chamois in the same area.

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 !
