Summer’s just getting started and temperatures are already running high… If you’re feeling all hot and bothered, Region Dents du Midi’s got the best tips to beat the heat and keep cool as a cucumber!

Take a ramble in the shade…

If hiding under a parasol doesn’t rock your boat, why not seek shelter in the refreshing greenery of an alpine forest? Under the canopy of the They Valley forest in Morgins, the Chemin des Ponts leapfrogs over the Vièze River on 32 little bridges. Along the way, five wooden shelters offer comfortable picnic spots. In Troistorrents, the Vieux Moulins de la Tine clings higgledy-piggledy to the damp crags of the Tine River gorge. Visits to the old mill are free with your Multi Pass, the very same Multi Pass you can use for great discounts at the ropes courses perched high in the treetops in Champéry and Champoussin. If you’re feeling really adventurous, the Via Ferrata de Tière scales the cool chasm of the Tière River gorge, crisscrossing the rushing torrent over two suspended bridges. 

…Just Add Water!

Your Multi Pass also gives you free, unlimited access to Morgins’ and Champéry’s outdoor pools! Alternatively, if you’re looking for a more rugged setting, canyoning is a great way to dive into the great outdoors! You might also hike to a waterfall or a pristine alpine lake – there’s nothing like an icy footbath in glacial meltwater to recuperate after a steep climb! While we’re at it, here are a few more tips for summer hiking:  

  • Get an early start – avoid leaving during the hottest hours of the day.
  • Hydrate – take more water than you might usually carry.
  • Cover up – always pack sunglasses, hat and sunscreen. 

It’s summer, let the fun in the sun begin!
