Summer info
Summer guests in Les Collons can expect a wide range of activities. Enjoy the fresh mountain air while hiking or mountainbiking: 500 km of walking-/hiking trails and 330 km Mountainbike-Tours are available in the whole region.

Families with kids can enjoy easy walks without major differences in altitude along the "Suonen" (historic irrigation channels), e. g. Bisse de Vex. The tour 'Val d’Hérens' goes along the hills to traditional villages and hamlets with wooden houses. At the end of the valley you can visit the 285 m high Grand Dixence dam. There is the starting point for walks around the reservoir. Our recommendation: Take the cable car from the bottom of the Grand Dixence dam up to the dam top and there take the nature trail called "Steinbock-Höhenweg" (=capricorne trail) to the Val des Dix. This circular track goes via the pass Col de Roux offering an amazing view over the reservoir and the snowy peaks and ends at the reservoir.

Tours of all levels of difficulty are well signposted and bikes can be taken up in the cables cars during summer.

Other summer activities
Climbing, e.g. at Evolène, paragliding over the Val d’Hérens, horse riding and golf (in Sion).
