Alpes du Sud planned a hike.

  • Alpes du Sud

    You hike through the Gyr Valley, always with a view of the high granite walls, up to the old Alpine hamlet of Ailefroide. In summer this wonderful place is a popular destination for hikers and climbers, because the air is quite cool due to its location.The circular hike starts in Les Claux at the hydroelectric power station. It was built in 1935 and is still in use. A museum room has been set up in the building, where you can learn a lot of interesting facts about the history of the factory and about the water and electricity supply in the region.On a beautiful, in parts even paved path, you hike through larch forests to the chalets of Serre and Pra Chapel, cross an avalanche corridor and finally reach the first houses above Ailefroide. You always have the grandiose mountains around the valley and the mountain village in view and if you are lucky, you will also see the pair of eagles that have been breeding in the valley of Ailefroide for several years.In Ailefroide you cross the bridge to the other side of the Torrent du Saint-Pierre and walk through the village in its entire length. The way back now leads you back to Les Claux on the opposite side of the valley.
