  • Beautiful excursions aboard the new funicular after having been very well received by the person who sold us the tickets. Pity that it have nothing to do until the next start... After all goes perfectly for an adventure of 45 min on 3 means of transportation out of the ordinary. The trip on the little train is breathtaking in the face of the Mont Blanc. Enjoy through the Crown of the dam to complete the discovery.

  • Magical trip in the Alps, with an exceptional view of the Mont Blanc massif. The walk, despite a price quite high but justified by the exceptional nature of the facilities and the cost of maintaining them, must not be missed. And to make the day perfect, the top, is to leave Vernayaz or Martigny with the train (Martigny-Châtelard) rack and stop at the Marécottes Alpine Zoo and swim (in summer when it is very hot) in in its "natural" pool among the rocks. These form a full and unforgettable day. Not to be missed if you are in the area!
