Visit the Vièze River Gorge


Explore a primeval paradise, just a stone's throw from the busy city centre in Monthey.

Delve deep into this spectacular river gorge and learn how the elements have shaped the development of Monthey. This short hike takes you right into an almost-untouched natural paradise, with a fascinating geological and historical heritage. Curious hikers will love the tunnels carved into the rock walls and the suspended alpine footbridge at the end of the gorge.
