Marathon of Flavours

The Marathon des Saveurs is a hike through the Valais wine region that lets sporty connoisseurs and gourmet athletes explore the unique aspects, sights and delicacies of the region. At each of five culinary stops, two wines and a regional speciality are waiting to be enjoyed. The marked trails take you through the Valais vineyards from Sion to Salgesch (route “East”, 23 km, 650 metres elevation gain) or from Sion to Chamoson (route “West”, 21.5 km, 850 metres elevation gain). Both are easily doable and take about eight to nine hours, including sampling and meal stops, although the time is not measured. Registration is required, as places are limited. The race fee of CHF 119 includes all documents, the five culinary stations, a small gift at the finish and return transport to Sion with RegionAlps.
