Your excursion in Val de Bagnes

To the origins of raclette

From Le Châble, PostBus takes you to your destination on a road lined with typical Valais hamlets, where you will gradually be immersed in the legendary atmosphere of the Val de Bagnes.

The irrigation channels of Bruson

Easy walk starting at the Raclett’House restaurant in Bruson. The Ravines irrigation channel was first filled with water in 1908. When it was redeveloped in October 2013, the various techniques that were previously used to build these irrigation channels typical of Valais and Alpine agriculture were made visible once again. It is a pleasant walk, suitable for families and takes in both forests and meadows.

The outward leg takes about an hour. On the return leg, you have the option of taking a small detour through the picturesque village of Bruson to see the traditional barns of Val de Bagnes and explore the home of Valais protected-designation-of-origin raclette.
