The Valais chain of the Alps gloriously delimits the bottom of the Val d’Hérens, revealing its prestigious peaks, including the Dent-Blanche, the Dent d’Hérens, and the Matterhorn! Just below the glaciers and snow-capped peaks, you can smell the scent of the flowers of its mountain pastures, perceive the force of its torrents swelled by the melting snow, let yourself be lulled by the sound of cow bells. A breed was born from the rest of this region: the wrestling cows of the Hérens Race.
The villages are peaceful, welcoming, of typical wooden construction. The inhabitants are proud to have preserved many of their traditions and still speak for the most part the patois, local dialect.
As you will have understood, the Val d’Hérens invites you for a break, an immersion in nature, far from daily hassles, out of time.
