‘New’ website…

I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that I was working on adding all 33 of the walks I had documented to this website and now I’m pleased to announce, IT’s FINISHED!! 😊 I had wondered about waiting until 5am on 4th March ’21 to ‘launch’ it, but I just couldn’t wait that long! (I hope you see what I did there).

I’ve updated the banner photos too, to have a little more variety and added a Contact menu option – just in case anyone would like to comment or request any more information. So, please feel free to have a browse around the pages under the “Walks in the Val d’Hérens” heading – at anytime and especially if you are stuck at home and self-isolating. Just select Easy, Medium or Challenging and then click on any of the walks summarised underneath the overview map… You’ll then find a map and a gallery of photos, as well as a route description should anyone visit this area to do any of the walks themselves.

Below are a few random photos taken from the associated galleries… (I should have done a quiz and asked which walk they belonged to… Too late now of course!) I hope it showcases what a wild and naturally beautiful part of the world the Val d’Hérens is!

Your comments and feedback (especially for any improvements) are always welcome of course. 😊

  1. I think this is brilliant, Mike! Makes me want to throw up my job and come and live in Switzerland. One little suggestion – is there public transport to any of the walks that don’t begin in the village itself? Not everyone will have access to a car, or feel confident driving on mountain roads, and I know Switzerland’s rail and bus network is supposed to be amongst the best in the world…

    • Thanks Viv! Yes, I mention in a few places about catching the postbus. All of the end points are served by a postbus, except one and that is a different service (which I’ve never caught) to the Dixence dam. But I think anyone coming to the area without a car would know, or find out about, the bus timetable.


  2. What a great job you did 🙂 I’m sure that I wil take a look to these walks from time to time. As you know, I love Switserland but for the moment travelling is not advised. So now we can travel and walk the digital way. Have a nice day and keep on the good work Mike.

  3. Well done, it looks wonderful, Mike! I jumped around briefly, what a wealth of information you have put together for a local hiker or visiting tourist! I look for this type of info when we visit places, getting the real inside info and photos to see the park and hikes, instead of the general website. 👍👍 Two thumbs up!!
