Description

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.

Day 4: Grand Saint-Bernard pass -Mille pass. A bit of history with great men of the Grand Saint-Bernard pass : Hannibal, Saint Bernard de Menthon, Napoleon Bonaparte.

Day 5: Mille-Verbier pass. Yoga session optional in the morning, “ecological survey in Val de Bagnes”.

I invite you to contact me if this challenge interests you!

About the guide: -Sarah

Mountain Leader

Setting off on an adventure on a whim, without a precise plan, walking according to desires and emotions, pushing further to discover what a summit or a ridge reveals. Trained as a business lawyer, then manager of a large sports store, biathlete and trail runner, it was my job as a guide that ultimately allowed me to establish a more structured and secure framework for my wanderings, but without ever losing my wonder and my curiosity. It is with this state of mind that today I like to travel and share the mountains here and elsewhere, preferably roaming, in order to give us time to soak up the landscapes which evolve over time, days and seasons.

I will always be happy to set off on the classic tours, but above all I strive to guide you off the beaten paths.

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.
