Thyon and Hérémence, known as the “Gouilles (puddles) of Essertze”, are only a two-kilometre walk from “Thyon 2000” and wonderful picnic destination for friends and family. We also recommend taking strolls through the unique flora in order to leave behind the stress of the modern world. The panorama of alpine peaks and the Grande Dixence dam is simply breathtaking.

The first stage of the Tour du Val d’Hérens is a panoramic high-level hike with a dramatic backdrop: glacier-draped peaks and Europe’s tallest dam.
