Val d’Anniviers Routes: St-Luc–Chandolin Route


From Vissoie the post bus takes you through numerous hair-pin turns up the steep road to the authentic mountain villages and popular holiday destinations of St-Luc and Chandolin.

From Vissoie the post bus takes you through numerous hair-pin turns to St-Luc and Chandolin, two rustic mountain villages that appear to be clinging to the hillside. Situated at the fork of Val d‘Anniviers, Vissoie is the gateway to a wide variety of excursions in the valley. A medieval tower, the church and the Château chapel bear witness to the history of this village (PostBus stop Vissoie, Post Office). Enjoy the views from the terrace of the elegant Belle Epoque hotel Grand Hotel Bella Tola & St-Luc in St-Luc (PostBus stop St-Luc, Hôtel Bella Tola). You should also try to make time to visit the 18 thcentury grain mills and reach for the stars in the François-Xavier Bagnoud astronomical observatory (PostBus stop St-Luc, Post Office, change to gondola). Learn all about the planets on the planet path starting in St-Luc. The village is also the base for many other hiking and mountain biking tours: along the shores of pretty mountain lakes, to the peak of Bella Tola or to the stately Hotel Weisshorn. From this antique hotel you have fantastic views of the Matterhorn and Val d’Anniviers. Chandolin is one of the highest year-round inhabited villages in Europe (PostBus stop Chandolin, Post Office). Savor the amazing scenery along the botany educational path or while hiking to the spectacular Illgraben rock basin. The St.Luc-Chandolin ski area is known for long hours of sunshine and stunning vistas.
