A pleasant walk in the mountains
In the summer, what could be nicer than a walk in the mountains to reconnect with nature? In the La Tzoumaz - 4 Vallées area, you’ll find a great choice of marked paths, of varying degrees of difficulty. From panoramic or family-friendly walks to more demanding hikes, there is something for everyone.
Make sure you go along the bisse de Saxon, part of which is just above La Tzoumaz. It’s the longest in Valais!
Afterwards, try an exhilarating descent on a cross-country scooter!
