A HANKERING TO STRETCH YOUR LEGS…
Autumn days may be shorter, but they’re also cooler! Sweater weather temperatures are perfect for invigorating hikes that start early and end up on a sun-soaked terrace over a delicious autumn snack.Hikers and bikers can take the lifts to get up, up and away in just minutes, and walkers with the Multi Pass can use the lifts and public transportation for free!
Walkers seeking a little introspection after the frenetic pace of summer will certainly enjoy a gentle heritage hike. Developed with the Patrimoine Champérolain, the Champéry – Grand Paradis and Champéry – Val-d’Illiez Oratory Trails feature quaint stone monuments here and there along the roadside. Built by our ancestors to implore Divine protection, or in fulfilment of a vow, these miniature chapels are an integral part of our landscape and a quiet invitation to peaceful reflection.
For serious hikers, this is the perfect time to test your summer-trained legs on the Trek Chablais Valaisan, a trail that leads all the way from the soaring Dents du Midi to the shores of Lake Geneva through magnificent landscapes in all their autumnal glory.
…AND A THIRST FOR DISCOVERY!
Out and about in the pastures and forests, you’ve probably already seen or heard some of our iconic alpine wildlife, but how do you find out more? Where do they hide? Can you approach them safely? Why do they do that? Our experts will give you all these answers and more on outings dedicated to observing wildlife or the belling of the stags.
For those of you who feel a yearning for distant horizons just as winter threatens to shut you in, the Champéry Film Festival will whisk you away for adventure from the comfort of your own home! On November 11th & 12th, join an expedition crew of artists, filmmakers, sports enthusiasts, and nature lovers for an unforgettable round-the-world voyage of discovery.
Etienne Claret is heading home, after an incredible polar adventure in the company of Mike Horn. Morginois by birth and an (incredibly talented) videographer and photographer by vocation, some of the thousands of shots he captured on this extraordinary expedition will become part of an exhibit called ‘Fire & Ice’, showing November 11th – 25th at the Chalet de la Treille in Troistorrents. The artist’s opening will be held on November 19th.
