Sports hike on the Trail Verbier Saint Bernard course.
The Trail Verbier Saint Bernard route (Alpine X) is run by the best trailers in fifteen hours. I propose to cross it in 5 days, at sports hike rhythm. Not less than 111 km for a total positive vertical drop of 8400m, through the Val de Bagnes and Val d’Entremont via the Grand Saint-Bernard pass.
Definitely a performance punctuated by culture, history and legends, and of course in a fabulous setting overlooking the snowy peaks of the region.
Challenge yourself and discover this fabulous course!
Here is the program that I propose.
Day 1: Verbier-Champex. Discover the Château de Bagnes, the legend of Catogne. Ascend Catogne, one of the finest viewpoints of Valais.
Day 2: Champex-La Fouly. Yoga session optional in the morning (with Cecilia Swensson, qualified teacher). The visit of the Champex marshes and the Alpine Garden, the layering of vegetation, the Orny glacier.
Day 3: La Fouly- Grand Saint-Bernard pass. In search of the Val Ferret wolf, Hospice of the Grand Saint-Bernard pass.
