Walking
Families with kids can enjoy easy walks without major differences in altitude along the "Suonen" (historic irrigation channels), e. g. Bisse de Vex. The tour 'Val d’Hérens' goes along the hills to traditional villages and hamlets with wooden houses. At the end of the valley you can visit the 285 m high Grand Dixence dam. There is the starting point for walks around the reservoir. Our recommendation: Take the cable car from the bottom of the Grand Dixence dam up to the dam top and there take the nature trail called "Steinbock-Höhenweg" (=capricorne trail) to the Val des Dix. This circular track goes via the pass Col de Roux offering an amazing view over the reservoir and the snowy peaks and ends at the reservoir.
