Description

There is so much a person can do when exploring a beautiful natural place. And in the Val d’Anniviers that is absolutely true. Whether you want to hike through the mountains, or bird watch, or in the case of this trip, pick and taste some of the delicious wild plants, the area is a true playground.

For a full day, I would like to guide you through the lush meadows and forests of the Val d’Anniviers. I would like to take you along the rivers, while staring up at the sensational peaks of the Swiss Alps. But most of all, I would like to show you the array of wild plants that you can pick and eat.

Beginning at 9:00 am, we will start our hike through the Val d’Anniviers. This trip takes place during the summer months. As a result, you will get to see the flowers and plants at bull bloom. And I will joyfully point out which plants you can pick and prepare for a varied and delicious lunch that we will all enjoy together in a lovely picnic before the trip ends at approximately 4:00 pm.

There is nothing quite like exploring nature. And at the Val d’Anniviers you will get to do just that. You will also get to learn about the area’s ample plant life. And beyond that, you will get to enjoy its vast collection of delectable flavours. So send me a request, come and enjoy a great hike and tasty natural meal!

You can also join me on this day long hike through the Rechy valley in the same area of the Swiss Alps as 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 !

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
