Swiss Valais Trails

Outstanding running day tours, with optional yoga and meditation

Based in the village of Grächen we explore some of the best running tours of the Matterhorn valley. 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.

Special edition: For the June course we will be based across the valley on Moosalp in a very special location. This will be a “live slow” experience, living simply together in a alphütte where our heating and cooking will be by wood fire. We’ll be on a journey together moving into stillness through a combination of meditation and running. Email us for more information. Join us for a unique and special offering!

Want to come with your family or non-running partner or friend? 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!
