Tour description

Get a whiff of the Middle Ages in the little town of Leuk and hike through the vineyards to the Satellite Base Station in Brentjong, which has a futuristic design.
The path to the famous ex voto pilgrimage chapel of Thel leads through the forest fire area above Leuk. In 2003 thousands of trees and bushes fell victim to the fire. In the heart of the Sonnenberg Mountains, in Guttet-Feschel, hikers enjoy a magnificent view over the Rhone Valley. From Feschel the trail leads on the sunny side of the Valais to the mountain village of Jelzinen.
