Winter walks through Nendaz

Enjoy some of Europe’s tallest larches on a scenic walk through the valley forests of Nendaz

We love a good hike. Especially in winter when the trees are topped with snow, the ground under foot is crispy and the air is really fresh. Thankfully Nendaz is the perfect resort to enjoy all of this, while taking in some of Europe’s finest larch tree forests.

Begin: Nendaz / Tracouet mountain station
End: Nendaz / Tracouet mountain station
Starting point: By cable car from Nendaz
Physical fitness: Easy
Hiking time: 2h
Length: 7km

The forests on the Alp Balavaux include around 250 trees, with some being over 800 years old. The trail takes you winding through the trees, enjoying some incredibly enchanting views.

Route
Start your journey at the top of the Tracouet lift. Walking towards the cable railway and down the cleared trail. Follow the gently sloping trail down the edge of the Dent de Nendaz towards Alp Balavaux. Down the trail you will be able to enjoy the spectacular views over the Rhone Valley. Once you have passed the Cabane de Balavaux restaurant on the mountain, continue upwards on the trail towards Prarion and the valley station up the Plan du Fou. You won’t be disappointed on the journey or when you eventually reach the top, as the fantastic views are certainly worth the effort. The walk takes you back down the trail that you have come down to end back at the Tracouet lift station.

There are a number of mountain restaurants you can visit on your walk if you get peckish or are in need of a warming glass of Vin Chaud. You can drop into either the Cabane de Balavaux, Restaurant Plan-du-Fou or the Restaurant Tracouet.

If you aren’t a fan of skiing or snowboarding, or just fancy a break, then this makes for a lovely opportunity to enjoy some spectacular mountain features and views.
