Arrival to Sion
Alongside the Bisse de Vex to Mayens de Sion. Mighty concrete church in Hérémence, the fairytale world of the earth pyramids in Euseigne is an invitation to daydream. Ascent to St. Martin, which clings to the side of the Val d’Hérens like an eagle’s nest.
Wonderful high-level hike above the Rhone Valley through Valais villages, on down into Vallon de Réchy. From the head of the Grand Bisse de Vercorin alongside the open suone (irrigation channels) to Réfuge du Bisse.
Nax – Vercorin
A demanding stage through the Vallon de Réchy. In Vercorin, the stage stop, an old village centre worth seeing awaits you around the church.
Vercorin – Grimentz
The around 500-year-old suone (irrigation channel) «Bisse des Sarrasin» and its 17 information panels are of great historical and technical interest. The route then leads via the «Grand Bisse de St-Jean» suone to the typical Valais village of Grimentz.
Departure or Extension
The tour makes greater demands on physical condition especially towards the end. The hikes along the bisses (Suonen) are mostly flat, but there are ascents and descents to master now and again. The rock can be slippery when it rains. Sure-footedness and, sometimes, a head for heights are required.
