Swiss Valais Trails

Outstanding running day tours, with optional yoga and meditation

We’ve spent a lot of time now in and around Grächen while organising the Ultra Tour Monte Rosa. There are some magnificent trails right from the village and nearby in this part of the Swiss canton Wallis / Valais. So we thought now it’s time to have a running camp based in Grächen to share these gems with you! We are also ideally placed to explore some of the best running tours of the Matterhorn and Saas valleys.

With a valley base we can be flexible and tailor the routes to the participants and according to the weather or snow level. This is an ideal opportunity to boost your skills for running on more technical mountain terrain, work on endurance and confidence, or simply enjoy some days in the mountains in like-minded company.

All tours are led by Lizzy Hawker.


Want to come with your family or non-running partner or friend? Grächen is a wonderful place for families and it’s also a great place for your companions to be based for hiking or outdoor activities or visiting nearby Zermatt. We can give you suggestions!
