Hiking in Val d'Hérens
Nothing recharges your batteries like a breath of alpine air. Genuine valley traditions, unspoilt nature, ancient houses made of sun-darkened wood. In summer, cycling, walking, horse-riding… Or maybe you prefer to just relax on the banks of a stream ? Over 500 km of footpaths wind around the valley. Val d’Hérens is a famous centre for mountaineers, with mountain huts providing bases for many climbs.
The Hérens cows found in this valley are a unique breed known for their wild temperament. The cows fight to select a “ queen ” of the herd, and these “ combats ” are the focus of lively festivals.
Val d’Hérens is also about, drinking a toast with friends in the cosy atmosphere of the bistrots and mountain refuges.
