Val d'Anniviers Trail Running Collection

We consider Switzerland’s Valais Region to be the best overall trail running destination in the Alps. And within the Valais there are a few areas packed with perfection. Imagine quiet, idyllic villages sitting in the middle of a network of trails, peak runs, scrambles, and huts to serve as aid stations. In this case, all surrounded by some of the Alps’ most dramatic 4000-meter peaks.

One of the Valais’ most densely stacked areas with both quality running and some of the biggest terrain, the French-speaking Val d’Anniviers is a hotspot for experiencing the very best of the Alps. Home of the Sierre-Zinal race, an overnight on the Via Valais, and access to the most Himalayan-looking area of the Alps (See the Dôme), the Val d’Anniviers is certainly a trail running destination worthy of a lengthy stay.

Our micro-guide to the Val d’Anniviers is a carefully crafted collection of the best trails and peaks to be run in one of the absolute best regions to run. Base yourself there and get to exploring.
