To the origins of Raclette
PostBus takes you to your destination from Le Châble, passing typical hamlets and introducing you to the famous and unique atmosphere of the Val de Bagnes. Arriving in Bruson, you will immediately feel immersed in a setting where time seems to stand still...
The village of Bruson has waited over 2,000 years for its own exhibition about raclette. Melted cheese, also called “Alpine gold” and symbol of Switzerland – so precious and delicious!
At the PALP Festival, it finally takes centre stage and is celebrated with great fanfare.
A diversified program allows you to (re-)discover it in surprising contexts.

An easy walk starting out from the Restaurant Raclett’house in Bruson. The ‘Bisse des Ravines’ channel was filled with water in 1908. Its redevelopment in October 2013 highlighted the various techniques used in the past during the construction of Valais’ symbolic irrigation channels and its mountain agriculture. The walk is pleasant and family-friendly and passes through forests and pastures.
The walk there takes around one hour. On the return journey, it is worth taking a loop through the picturesque village of Bruson and exploring the traditional barns of the Val de Bagnes, the homeland of the Valais Raclette AOP.
Stop off nearby Valbord. Filled with water from mid-May until mid-October. Picnic spots along the route. Valais speciality dishes and local produce for sale from the
Raclett’house as well as the nearby cheese dairies and mountain lodges.
Duration of walk 2 hrs
Highest point 1,264m
