This is a spectacular location with a breathtaking view. You could take nice walk along this massive rock. If you are lucky you could bump into a family of mountain goats. Be careful along the edges of the rock as there is no fence or...More

If you have enough time go to see this place! From the train station Noiraigue it‘s about a 90‘ walk up there and you have to get up quite a bit of altitude. Easier would be the stop at the parking of „Le soliat“ a...More

It is a bit of a ride in the mountains but when you arrive it is beautiful. You have to walk for 25 minutes to reach the top and its a good spot to make pictures. It looks like the Grand Canyon but much smaller.

It’s worth it! You have to hike for 1h30 but, if the weather is good, you will really enjoy the sightseeing. It’s accessible by car, but it’s really better to go for the hike.

From Noiraigue you can walk to and around the Creux du Van. Do bare in mind that it is a long climb at first (725m?). Some advice: it can get windy and very chilly. If there is a lot of wind, check with the tourist...More

When you’re in switzerland and like to hike, creux du van is a perfect spot. An impressive canyon! From the top you can see from tödi to mont blanc. That means that you can see nearly all alpine peaks in switzerland on a sunny day....More

From Noiraigue to the way up, I appreciated at some point you can go counting your left turns to the top. Once you make it there, the hike is quite flat around the canyon. I also liked that if you are willing to continue, it...More

HI, If the weather permits: Try to visit "Creux du Van" : a startling rocky mountain. It's most practical to have a (rental) car to get there. There's a train going to Travers, but from there it's still a long hike. Maybe... More
