Majestic peaks, alpine lakes, glaciers, waterfalls, mountain passes, forests, exceptional flora and fauna! An accessible walking trail in a fabulous setting. Access amazing panoramas on an extraordinary trail.

Discover one of the first hiking trails in Valais, the legendary Dents-du-Midi circuit. Inaugurated in 1972, it owes its reputation to the marathon held there for nearly 40 years. The accommodation options dotted along the trail mean that you can organize your breaks as you like, stopping to sleep, have a meal or just a refreshing drink.

This trail requires hikers to be in good physical condition. It is accessible to families. It is can be completed in 2, 3 or 4 days from June to October, depending on snow conditions. There are many alternative trails to add on, allowing you to lengthen your stay if you so wish.

The following recommendations of the Swiss Alpine Club apply to all stays in our huts:

  • Visit our huts only if you are in good health!
  • Book your accommodation – no reservations, no overnight stay.
  • Please bring your following personal belongings: sleeping bag sheet, pillowcase, disinfectant resp. soap, towel, possibly protective masks (Caution: some huts have removed duvets and blankets. You must therefore bring your own sleeping bag. Before staying overnight, please ask at the corresponding hut).
  • Take your waste back to the plain.

In addition to the added safety being accompanied brings, our professional moutain hike leaders will be able to tell you all about the mountains and their secrets!

Whether it's for a quick break, a meal or an overnight stay, there are many accommodation options dotted along the trail allow hikers to complete the circuit at their own pace.
