N. 15 – Liddes

Liddes-Vichères

Very beautiful and varied circuit which starts from a pretty plateau, runs alongside a river and crosses a typical hamlet.

This beautiful, varied route starts on a pleasant plateau at the northern entrance to the village of Liddes. It then follows the banks of the River Dranse through the typical hamlet of the same name, before looping back to the Palasuit hydroelectric power station.
