Along a stone wall, this hike is easy and also for smaller children. Stunning views over the valley and at its end and great restaurant to relax.

This is really breathtaking. This time we did it horizontally only. This means we took it from the end, and walk until the stairs (i.e. from right to left when looking at the wall) and return. There is however a full option that consist on...More

This is a neat, with a light adrenaline touch stroll! I was not really lucky with the views that day but I still loved it and took great photos. It´s a must see in the area if you are not a vertigo sufferer!

No worry this is an easy walk. It is not a steep path, it has a few stairs and the path is 1-2 m broad. However the wooden fence is far from trustworthy so I strongly suggest not to lean over. It takes around one...More

Really great hike. Only takes an hour or so from start to finish. It's signposted from the town, but the signs are quite small. I was worried I would freeze with the heights but I was absolutely fine. However, my partner, who is usually fine...More

OK, so some reviewer said that this walk was fine for those with a fear of heights! So I got to stare at the cliff-face, feeling dizzy for 500 metres while everyone was admiring the view. It's a dead drop and real scary.

The best way to find the start is to use the GPS directions from Noam's review in 2014- Route des Rives 11 1874 Champéry. Swiss 2 of our party are not confident of heights, but after reading several of the other reviews decided to give...More

We did this hike from Champery and we loved it. Our children are 9 & 6 and they were able to hike without any issues, you see this mentioned as easy in all the guide but I would rate it as medium. The total distance...More

This hike goes around the mountain 'wall' and has lovely views over Champery. You can walk from the centre of Champery and it took us 1.5 hours from the centre of town to get to the 'top'. There is a pub/restaurant at the end once...More
