Martigny – La Forclaz-Pass

Be careful along the pathway, you may be joined by some deer!

To reach the spectacular views worthy of postcards, you have to prepare yourself for the 1,500 metres ascent of Mont Arpille from Martigny. To appreciate the climb, why not make a stopover at Bâtiaz Castle, discover the bread ovens in the picturesque hamlets of Ravoire and, above all, take the time to admire the Rhône valley during the climb. From the Alpine pasture to the Mont de l’Arpille, the ascent takes 30 minutes.
