Description

Let’s discover together, step by step, the beauty in simplicity. Still timid, Val d’Anniviers is a great charmer. Day after day, a contrasted universe between mountain giants and human warmth.

Of all the tours I offer in Switzerland and elsewhere, this is one of my favourites. Some of the reasons are:

  • The magic of Réchy valley and its geological richness;
  • The edelweiss fields greeting us;
  • The emerald colour of Moiry lake  and a drink at the shore, with my local products;
  • The majestic 4000m: Dent BlancheBisshornZinalrothorn…;
  • The mythical Weisshorn hotel and its history linked to the mountain and English mountaineers.
