Thermal water spring

Rinse your face and hands with thermal water and feel the difference.

This trail takes walkers to the hot spring of the Bains de Saillon. The painter Gustave Courbet immortalised this place on his canvas “La Caverne des Géants”. The painting illustrates this idyllic place where there is also a commemorative plaque in honour of the Valais Robin Hood, Farinet, who spent his life in these gorges and even died here.
