In Family

Fill up on memories

In the mountains

Discovering wide open spaces, sharing unforgettable moments with your family for a weekend or a week’s vacation. Are you looking for more space, more mountains, more hiking?

Activities for young and old are waiting for you this summer in Thyon.

Here’s how your vacation week could be:an apartment in Les Collons at the edge of the forest, close to the start of marked walks and accessible. A day or half-day hike. More of a bike rider? Rent E-bikes and ride down the slopes from Etherolla towards the Cabane d’Essertze.

Looking for supervised activities? Hérens Outdoor offers you a whole program adapted to the whole family.

I want to go there!

Give me more info

Discover the fauna of the region thanks to the playful signs placed along the way!

This trail is located at an altitude of 1800-1900 meters. It is located between Thyon-Les Collons and the Ours trail. It runs through a forest of spruce, fir, larch, etc.

The Didaludic Trail was made by the students of the Cycle d’Orientation du Val d’Hérens. The five didactic panels along the trail are really worth a look: all nicely illustrated by the students, they give interesting information, without being too complicated or long to read. Everything is included in French, German and English.

The topics covered on the educational panels are:

  • The Alpine marmot
  • The cry-cry of the zoizos
  • The bear
  • Green energies
  • Ants

Take the challenge, answer the trail quizzes and win a souvenir!

Midway along the trail, at the Gouilli d’en bas, a picnic spot by a small body of water offers a welcome moment of relaxation, before starting the return journey.
