Description

Trail along the footsteps of the Dents du Midi, in the beatuiful setting of the Swiss Alps. Join me for a 2-day adventure on one of the best trails in this region.

The massif of the Dents du Midi is renowned for the beauty of its landscapes, the impressive presence of its cliffs, hills, valleys, rivers and waterfalls, and its fauna and flora. The region is also known because of a marathon that has been ran for almost 40 years. This gave way to the Trail Dents du Midi, one of the best courses in the country.

I invite you to discover these paths on this 2-day hike. The total distance we cover is 57 km, with an altitude change of 3600 m.

Who can come on this tour? This tour is open to curious people who would like to get to know the course in order to participate in the competition. It is also open to sporty people who are looking to engage in a trek at a slightly higher pace than average.

The goal of this program is not to achieve an outstanding performance. It is not meant to be a training session either. The only objective is to enjoy an exceptional and serene time in the mountains. The difficulty level for this program is Sustained to Hard.

The itinerary includes trailing from Champéry (Val d’Illiez) to Mex (Rhone Valley), via Anthéme (Day 1), and from Mex back to Champéry, via the Jorat pass (Day 2).

See more details on the itinerary below.
