Starting at an altitude of 3,330 m at the top of the Mont-Fort, this zip line is guaranteed to get your adrenaline flowing! Zoom over the Tortin glacier and land gently at the Col des Gentianes.
Get a taste of the Far North as you glide through the snowy landscape on a sledge drawn by huskies. Aline Luisier has loved these dogs ever since she was a teenager and will be delighted to share this wonderful experience with you. You can even become a musher for the day!

La Tzoumaz toboggan run
Zoom down one of the longest toboggan runs in French-speaking Switzerland, located in the La Tzoumaz – Savoleyres sector. With a 711 m drop and an amazing view of the Rhone valley, you are sure to have a great time with friends or family.
How would you like to go paragliding and see the world from above? Take off from Les Ruinettes, catch the air currents and admire all the snow-capped peaks in the Val de Bagnes. A number of paragliding schools offer tandem flights, so get ready for take-off!
If you prefer reaching the top of the slopes on skis rather than using the lifts, or letting off steam after a hard day’s work, then ski touring is what you’re after. A great activity which is suitable for night-time, too! Take a look at our suggestions.
Have you tried cross-country skiing yet? It’s based on Nordic skiing and is definitely worth discovering if you like fresh air and outdoor sports. At Les Ruinettes, you can try both classic cross-country skiing and skate skiing on a fabulously scenic slope that stretches over 2.5 km.
