Val d’Hérens - Nature, Tradition, History
Nothing recharges your batteries like a breath of alpine air. Genuine valley traditions, unspoilt nature, ancient houses made from sun-darkened wood. In summer, cycling, walking, horse-riding… Or maybe you prefer to just relax on the banks of a stream ? Over 500km of footpaths wind around the valley. The valley is a famous centre for mountaineers, with mountain huts providing bases for many climbs.
In this Valley, the Hérens breed of cows, with their wild temperament, are unique ! The cows fight to select a « queen » of the herd, and these « combats » are the focus of lively festivals.
Val d’Hérens, it is also to drink a toast with friends in the cosy atmosphere of the bistrots and mountain refuges.
