Bisse des Ravines

Filled with water from mid-May to mid-October, the Bisse des Ravines brings walkers up above the village of Bruson.

Typical features of the Valais mountain landscape, the bisses are ancient irrigation canals which used to bring water down from the glaciers and Alpine springs to the valley below. The paths that run along these are mute witnesses of a not-so-distant past and now make for pleasant walks. Created in 1908, the Bisse des Ravines was abandoned in 1942 before being completely restored in 2013. This gentle family walk starts in Bruson, at an altitude of about 1,000 metres. After an initial, slightly steep ascent, the route follows a gentle slope along the bisse, which flows alternately through wooden or metal channels or even underground. At the point where it takes in water, at an altitude of 1,300 metres, a pretty waterfall rises up under the watchful eye of a wolf carved out of the wood. This beautiful two-hour loop hike through flower-filled meadows and larch forests is just waiting for you!
