À partir de :  25CHF Full-fare
  • When a freerider from Bagnes who’s passionate about her region and its produce meets a heritage guide, there are sure to be plenty of Alpine flavours on the menu.

  • Spend a few hours with them and discover the treats they’ve brought along in their mysterious bags.

    A gentle hike will take you along the Bruson side of the Bisse des Ravines irrigation canal. Where there’s bisse water, you’re sure to find grass. And where there’s grass, you're certain to find cows – and milk. So let’s use that milk as our introduction to a whole world of local flavours.

    A gentle hike will take you along the Bruson side of the Bisse des Ravines irrigation canal. Where there’s bisse water, you’re sure to find grass. And where there’s grass, you're certain to find cows – and milk. So let’s use that milk as our introduction to a whole world of local flavours. To the sound of the water flowing down the bisse, we’ll transform the milk by adding a little local “spice” made from edelweiss, thyme, lemon balm and mint. Then, with the first part of our picnic made, we can continue on our way.

    After passing through a well-maintained landscape, we’ll reach the fields of aromatic herbs cultivated by the parents of Maude, our ambassador for the day. You’ll learn all about roseroot and edelweiss, discover the secrets of willowherbs, and study the beautiful corollas of the mint and lemon balm plants.

    After delving into all these flavours, it’s time to sit down in the midst of a typical Bagnes landscape and enjoy a picnic from those mysterious bags, accompanied by a delicious bottle of Fendant de Fully.
