Sentier des Chamois

The perfect walk for getting close to the local animals

featured in Hiking & walking routes Updated

This one way walk requires you to take the bus back to Verbier, so please be aware of the departure times.

The hike finishes in Fionnay where you can grab a bite to eat or if you're feeling hungry along the route, a great place to stop is the Cabane de Louvie where they offer local cuisine and even a bed for the night if you feel this walk was too much for one day.

What to bring

This route can be found on SwissTopo National maps: 1325 (Sembrancher) and 1326 (Rosablanche).


Start walking at Ruinettes or La Chaux, which can be reached by gondola. From La Chaux, drop down to the Mintset and thereafter head for Crêta d’Inyé before ascending in the direction of the Col Termin. Prior to ending with the descent to the village of Fionnay, enjoy a break on a sunny terrace at the Cabane de Louvie beside the lake of the same name.
