N.10 – Le Guide

Bourg-St-Pierre

Very nice path starting from the last village in the Valais before the Italian border.

This very pretty trail, starting from the last Valais village before the Italian border, crosses the River Dranse and follows it through the forest at the bottom of the valley. Make the most of this walk to discover the old village of Bourg-St-Pierre and its thousand-year-old bell tower!
