Tour description

This trail is not difficult and not particularly physically challenging. Your minimum investment will reap a maximum return! Against a superb alpine backdrop (the majestic north face of the Gastlosen almost at your feet), you will climb through the pristine snowfilled landscape to an altitude of 1752 metres and the Chalet du Régiment. Steeped in history, the chalet, sleeps 100 and serves fondue and other seasonal fare. During the winter months it is open on weekends.
