Hiking

The Chemin des contrées & Bisse du Ro bridge

Since last summer, Crans-Montana has two new attractions on its hiking trails.

On the one hand, a new route has been created on the lower hills. The Chemin des Contrées links Mollens to Icogne via Diogne. A 15 km walk on a route marked by forests, scree slops, waterfalls and which offers breathtaking views, in particular as it traverses two new areas since 2019, the ‘Boup’ and ‘Les Echerts’. The walk integrates the existing Grand Bisse, and offers several entrances and exits on the route, and lies at an altitude of around 1,000 metres. It can be explored in stages, which are described on 7 educational panels with QR codes. Discover a wild and until now inaccessible site, with the impressive Boup chasm, witness to scenes of withcraft in the 15th century…

On the other hand, the famous Bisse du Ro has a new suspension bridge. This spectacular walk, which links Crans-Montana to the Rawyl dam, offers real adrenaline rushes with vertiginous passages and fascinating viewpoints. Halfway between the Rawyl dam and the centre of Crans-Montana, the new 120m long and 70m high footbridge offers an innovative aerial perspective, and allows walkers to discover this legendary hike in complete safety.

Enduro World Series

It is an honour for Crans-Montana to host the Enduro World Series for the first time in 2021! This international competition, which is the equivalence of the World Cup in the discipline, will take place from 9 to 12 September 2021.

 

An exciting programme awaits participants. Firstly, two pro-races will take place in the destination.
