This wonderful hike starts at the top of the Savoleyres lifts. Set off on the path which goes down towards the Col de la Marlène and continue in the direction of the Pierre Avoi. To reach the summit, you will need to use ladders and have a good head for heights. At the top (2,472 m), you will be rewarded by a superb view of the Alps, the Rhone Valley, the Val de Bagnes and Verbier itself. You can then return to your departure point or, if you wish to prolong the pleasure, make your way down to Verbier via La Marlénaz and the chemin du Château.
To reach the top of Savoleyres, you can take the cable car from Verbier (Les Creux) or from La Tzoumaz.
