Explore an Alpine area dotted with rural villages, professionally laid out mule tracks, donkey-back bridges, rascards with unique mushroom pillars, Alpine lakes that sparkle like jewels, magical chestnut, beech and larch woods.

The stages of the route are designed to accommodate the relaxing rhythm of the places, and these include the magnificent valley of San Grato, which boasts the most representative examples of Walser architecture; the delightful experience of the open-air museum in the village of Chemp; the unexpected discovery of Niel; the Moretta bridge, draped over a ravine of disturbing beauty; the natural colors of Coumarial beech woods and Vluekji larch woods.

Overnight stays and meals are provided in the facilities that adhere to the "The Lys Trails" project and they offer hospitality and traditional products. The tour is self-guided, some initial information is given and more illustrative material will be delivered on the App. For some of the marked stages baggage transportation service and transfer of people are included.
