Croix-de-Culet - Lapisa - Le Pont - Champéry

Champéry

This itinerary traverses flowering alpine pastures, called alpages, in search of authentic Swiss alpine terroir and tradition.

The Champéry cable-car whisks you effortlessly to the Croix de Culet, located at an altitude of 2,000 metres. As you leave the cable car arrival station, take a moment to admire the picturesque vista spread out before you, with the magnificent Dents du Midi and Dents Blanches mountain ranges creating a spectacular backdrop. Then, drawn by the chime of distant cowbells, take the winding path that leads through sunny pastures, past the quaint Lapisa and La Pierre alpine farms, where you can stop for a bite to eat.

Good to know: at the Lapisa and La Pierre farms, you can watch a traditional cheese-making demonstration.
