Inaccessible by car, this idyllic valley hidden above La Tzoumaz is home to rich and abundant wildlife.
There are places far from civilization, places that seem to be untouched by humans, where you can reconnect with nature and merge into the landscape. The Vallon d’Arbi – or Chassoure – is one of those places. The Fare has carved out its channel in the centre and flows from the Lac des Vaux and Lac Rogneux to the valley where it joins the Rhône. It is also here that the historic Bisse de Saxon irrigation channel runs. With rich alpine biodiversity, the slopes are home to a great number of animals. Their presence makes it a popular territory for hunters (when the season is open), but especially for hikers hoping for that rare encounter. Short or Grand Tour of the Vallon d’Arbi, the Sentier du Fou or the Grand Tour of Lac des Vaux, whichever itinerary you choose, you’ll be in for a real treat.
