Start at the edge of Lake Moubra where there is a magnificent view of the resort and the ski slopes that overlook it. For convenience, there is also a large car park situated here.

This loop takes you around the what’s been described as the most beautiful 9-hole golf course in Switzerland. The course was created in 1951 and renamed the Jack Nicklaus after its transformation and expansion in 1986.

Quiet and close to nature, this route offers a magnificent view of the Valais Alps, from the Matterhorn to Mont Blanc. Finish your circuit at the restaurants on their lovely lake-side terraces.

Author’s recommendation

After the physical exercise savour a delicious menu at the new restaurant de la Plage at the border of the lake.
