Hiking: Valais Wine Trail

On the trace of wine

Fendant, Malvoisie or Heida are just a few of the most famous wines of the Valais. The grapes of these noble wines ripen in the plain between Martigny and Leuk, through which the Chemin du Vignoble passes. Along this path you will discover homely wine taverns, typical wine villages and some of the steepest vineyards in the world. Not only are the grapes that ripen along the Chemin du Vignoble unique - the walk itself is a real treat.

Tour character

A wonderful hike through the vineyards of the Valais. The paths are well developed and easy to walk on. The sometimes long stages can be shortened without any problems by public transport. Basic fitness is nevertheless necessary. In summer it can get very hot on the plain!
