Terroir & Nature in the valley of the Grande Dixence

Description

At 10:10 am, you meet your guide for the day, Céline Gaspoz, in Hérémence. A small welcome snack is served, based on "Le Pain que j'aime" bread and home-made jams. You will discover the delicious village of Hérémence by visiting the local producers who will make up your lunch. A short half-hour walk then takes you to Prolin, from where a shuttle bus brings you closer to your goal of the day. Finally, a snowshoeing excursion, punctuated by an open-air fondue with Val des Dix cheese, leads you to the Gîte de Mandelon. You spend the night there.

The next day, after a local breakfast, you descend individually to Leteyegon by sledge, snowshoes or even on skis, as you wish. From Leteygeon, the bus takes you back to Hérémence where your stay ends.
