The Belling of the Stag

Champéry

A twilight ramble into the forest as the darkening mountainsides come alive with the thundering cries of the stags' mating calls.

Join Nicolas, one of our favourite local hiking guides, for a ramble through the magnificent Soi nature preserve. Just past sunset you might be lucky enough to hear the slumbering forest come alive with a raucous, otherworldly sound. This is the ‘belling’ of the stag, or the mating call which the stag uses to attract his mate and intimidate potential rivals. Make it a night to remember in company of the King of the Forest!
