Hiking: Valaisan Sun Trail

Valaisan Sun Trail

Walliser Sonnenweg

The sun is high in the sky and the dry earth crunches beneath your hiking boots. It is a hot day in Valais and the Sonnenweg lives up to its name. You will start your hike on the southern slope of Lötschberg. An adventurous railroad trail, which offers views of the tunnels and viaducts of the Lötschberg railway line. The sun is low on the horizon, and the setting sun accompanies you as you climb down to Naters where your hike along the Sonnenweg of Valais comes to an end.

Suonen (irrigation channels) and the BLS railway line accompany this stage. Impressive view of the Baltschieder viaduct. Pipes for irrigating the dry south-facing slopes line the route. Information columns on the BLS Südrampe section and Swiss Guards Museum provide fascinating information.

Tour character

The paths are well developed and easy to walk on. However, the Valais Sun Trail is challenging because of the long stages and the many metres of altitude difference that have to be overcome each time.
