Along the way, you will discover the most beautiful waterfalls in the Val d'Ayas: starting from Champoluc you reach the Mascognaz waterfall first, very suggestive even at night thanks to the lighting; then you continue towards Arcesaz, a pretty village where there is a "secret waterfall" where you can also take a swim; the tour continues along the ancient Ru d'Arlaz to the waterfall at Challand-Saint-Victor, a waterfall with the same name as the locality; it is surrounded by an aura of mystery thanks to the numerous legends that characterize it; after having visited the Natural Reserve of Lake “Villa” the tour ends with the romantic Isollaz waterfall.
From Ru Herbal Springs to the Roman Bridges:
A trip to discover the valley of the “Cime Bianche” (White Peaks) in all its spectacularity and vastness; it is one of the few valleys that are still uncontaminated and wild among all of the valleys of the Alps.
This excursion offers the best views of the Monte Rosa glacier, following the path of the Ru Courtaud as far as the Evançon springs, starting from Barmasc, a pasture land and point of departure for numerous hikes of all difficulties. The tour then proceeds down into the picturesque Walser village of Saint Jacques following the Evançon to the woods of Praz Charbon, up to Brusson. We then go through Ru d 'Arlaz to the ancient and picturesque Roman Bridges at the bottom of the valley.
The trip starts from Brusson and, along the Ru d 'Arlaz, you reach the hill of the same name where the helicopter will be waiting for the bikers to take them on an exciting and panoramic trip flying over the castles of Issogne, Verres and Graines, landing at Col Tzecore.
After getting the bikes back with the help of the helicopter, the bike trip continues on towards Challand Saint Anselme, following a path immersed in nature that winds along the ancient mule tracks through the Bechaz gold mines, which have been exploited since the time of the Romans and which have recently been restored.
