Highlights

 
     

    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.

    Below this description, you’ll find the complete itinerary for this 5-day trip.

    All my hikes are adaptable and can be modified. Don’t hesitate to contact me for a customized program. I would love making you discover Val d’Anniviers, a place that I know so well.

    About the Guide

     
     

    I'm a UIMLA mountain leader, a rescuer and a journalist. Since 18 years, the mountain is my office and my full-time job. My passion is about to transmit the small and big secrets of nature but also to allow everyone to find his right balance in an environment which might appear as hostile but which is actually a large reservoir of unsuspected individual energy. Here in the mountain, the masks fall down and that's the good point of it !
