Valais vineyard trail on foot

Valais Wallis Promotion

Description of the activity

Fendant, Malvoisie or Heida are just a few of the most famous wines of the Valais. The grapes of these noble wines ripen in the plain between Martigny and Leuk, through which the Chemin du Vignoble passes. Along this path you will discover homely wine taverns, typical wine villages and some of the steepest vineyards in the world. Not only are the grapes that ripen along the Chemin du Vignoble unique - the walk itself is a real treat.
