Switzerland: Valais

Walking in Val D'Anniviers

  • Based in the French speaking region, truly stunning walks are on offer
  • Walk along glacier-fed lakes or up to the summit of Bella Tola at 3,050m
  • Witness panoramic views of the Rhone Valley and the imposing summits of the Swiss, French & Italian Alps

Located in the French speaking part of Switzerland, Val d'Anniviers offers some truly stunning walks. High above the Rhone Valley, Val d'Anniviers has an excellent postal bus service linking the small precariously perched villages, each with its own charm and history, enabling a large number of one way walks to be enjoyed. Cable cars and a funicular railway transport you to over 2,290m allowing you to explore even higher or to gently walk down to another wooden roofed village and return back to base by postbus. Enjoy wonderful weather here with an above average number of sunny days for Switzerland.

Val d'Anniviers is dotted with tiny villages some originating in the 13th century, each with its own traditions and character, many little changed by time. Some are on the valley floor, others cling to the valley side. Our chosen base is St. Luc (1,680m), an un-spoilt typical village of the region, which clings to the mountainsides.

Day 1: Arrive in St Luc

Arrive in the lovely Swiss town of St Luc, Val d'Anniviers. Below are just a selection of the many walks that are available in and around St Luc.
Overnight Hotel Bella Tola, St Luc (breakfast & dinner included).

Day 2: Chandolin Circular (10KM/6.5MILES)

A gentle walk to begin your trip. Follow the trail along the valley sides, going out at a high level over open heathland and then descending to the Botanical Walk. Return through the woods below or link to the Illgraben Circuit for a longer day (extra 6km).
Overnight Hotel Bella Tola, St Luc (breakfast & dinner included).

Day 3: The Bisse Walk (8KM/5MILES)

After a short, sharp ascent, this becomes a delightful and easy walk by the bisses (irrigation channels). Journey through woodland down to the valley where you have the option to extend this walk with the 'Navisence Trail'.
Overnight Hotel Bella Tola, St Luc (breakfast & dinner included).

Day 4: Bella Tola Ridge & Lakes (18KM/11.5MILES)

To ascend and walk this ridge you should be an experienced mountain walker, reasonably fit and with a good head for heights. It’s certainly worthwhile – the views are absolutely magnificent. But if the ridge itself is not for you, a shorter and lower route which still leads into mountain scenery and passes the three lakes, is possible, although the path may not always be distinct here. The final section of our descent is very demanding but can be omitted.
Overnight Hotel Bella Tola, St Luc (breakfast & dinner included).

Day 5: The Valley Villages Tour (20KM/12.5MILES)

A mostly low level walk connecting the pleasant lower villages of Val d’ Anniviers, with various options because you are always near the postbus service route.
Overnight Hotel Bella Tola, St Luc (breakfast & dinner included).

Day 6: Through the Woods to Vercorin (12KM/7.5MILES)

An easy walk with plenty of views through the trees, partly on quiet roads and mostly on the level until the final descent near Vercorin. It can be done in half a day, giving time to explore Sierre on your return journey.
Overnight Hotel Bella Tola, St Luc (breakfast & dinner included).

Day 7: Lac de Moiry Circuit (13KM/8MILES)

A high or low level circuit of the Moiry Dam, which as all reservoirs looks best when full. Beware of exposed snowy pockets on the high path, a route which should be avoided by vertigo sufferers. The side streams to be crossed on the high route may mean problems after much rain.
Overnight Hotel Bella Tola, St Luc (breakfast & dinner included).

Day 8: Depart St Luc

Say fond farewells to St Luc as you depart on the train.
