Taking the entire family along for a hike can mean that the “Olympic” hikers (those wanting to do daily long distance and altitude gains) can suffer for the other members of the family only wanting to do shorter hikes. Well, Verbier Switzerland has figured this out. With very challenging hikes for those wishing to set some fitbit records and also more casual hikes that take you to beautiful vistas and elegant country inns along the way.
You can hike up to a small village like la Tzoumaz a couple of hours from downtown Verbier and find lovely country inns and stay over or return on a different tail to your hotel in the main town of Verbier. All this while the Olympic hiker takes to hiking up to the top of Mont Fort a serious day’s climb for just under 11,000 feet.
The exciting part of all this is that this area has literally hundreds of trails and dozens of villages all connected by a series of small roads and lush hiking trails. Some go along lakes such as Lac des Vaux a couple hours walk from the center of the village.
Want to connect with your “Olympic” team and bring along grandpa – no problem. Most of the mountains are also ski areas during the winter so their villages and mountain tops are all connected with a series of Chairlifts, Telepheriques and Trams.
Their is childcare, Day Spas, Summer Camps, Ropes courses, cross country bike riding… the activities beyond hiking are endless.
Best of all you don’t have to carry a heavy pack to enjoy a week or two of great hiking.
