Dranse riverside trail: for walkers and cyclists! This trail which runs along the riverside from Châtel to Abondance is nearly 16 km long and accessible to everyone: families, sporty types, children and pushchairs.
The route is mostly flat and runs through areas of ecological interest, offering pretty riverside views and a chance to see the local heritage along the way… In short,it gives you a glimpse of another side of the Abondance Valley.
Several departures are proposed from the villages of Châtel, Abondance and La Chapelle d'Abondance. Discover the Abondance Valley at your own pace!
In July and August, the regular Colombus shuttle bus runs every day in the Abondance Valley and takes you to your starting point.
