The Stockalperweg (ViaStockalper), a mule track developed more than 300 years ago by Kaspar Stockalper, has been revived as a cultural hike for several years now.
The first stage of the Stockalperweg leads from Brig to the Simplon Pass.
The historic Alpine crossing runs along four generations of roads (Roman, Stockalper, Napoleon, National Road). Combined with cultural highlights and an impressive alpine flora in an imposing mountain backdrop, the Stockalperweg is a real experience.
The sights along the historic ViaStockalper tell many stories. So that you can fully enjoy these experiences, we recommend that you walk the route in 3 stages.
