VEYSONNAZ IN SUMMER
An ideal summer destination for mountain
lovers and sun worshippers as it offers more than 300 km of footpaths
in pine-scented forests, along the “Bisses” (waterways) and breathtaking scenery amongst the snow capped mountains.
To get a real feel for Swiss culture, gastronomy and the traditions of Veysonnaz, you can attend one of the "Valais" evenings, or take part in cellar-visits, bread-making in the village oven (which dates from 1796), cheese-making in an alpine farm, fruit-picking or harvesting. In June you can see one of Switzerland's most picturesque customs - the taking of cows to high pasture.

for hikers there are 300 km of marked paths, for mountain bikers there are 5 different runs with a total length of 70km, for walkers you can take part in a guided walk up to the glacier on the mountain peaks. for golfers there are 6 courses within an hours drive.
