Holiday information


Scenic St-Luc

Set in a dramatic, secret valley rising steeply from the great Rhône valley and its vineyards, the charming village of St-Luc offers spectacular views and a wide range of walking options – from gentle routes through meadows and along forest paths to more strenuous higher-level mountain trails. For a change from walking, you may like to take advantage of the area’s excellent transport network to visit some of its delightful villages – such as traditional Zinal with its interesting folk museum; or pretty Grimentz, whose flower-bedecked wooden houses explode with colour in the summer months.


  • Lauenen to St-Luc: 4.5hrs by bus & rail
    Today you travel by bus and train from Lauenen to St-Luc, where you stay at Hotel Le Grand Chalet Favre, with the option to upgrade to Grand Hotel Bella Tola just 200 metres away.

    From the moment you step off the postbus, you will be enchanted by this charming village, which you will have some time to explore before enjoying a splendid dinner of traditional dishes and fine Valais wine at your hotel restaurant.
  • Choice of walks from St-Luc: 13km to 15km
    There are numerous options for walking around St-Luc, from gentle, low-level paths to more demanding routes in the mountains. At your hotel, you’ll be given a free travel pass (Anniviers Liberté) which can be used on some local buses, the funicular and various lifts.
    To the Francois-Xavier Observatory: up to 13km, 4hrs
    A visit to the ultra-modern observatory at Tignousa which can be accessed either on foot or via the funicular is strongly recommended. The walking option takes you gently uphill and northwards to the high village of Chandolin with its pretty Valais timber houses, then back to the south and Tignousa.
    Mount Bella Tola circuit: 14km, 5hrs
    For a more challenging day, you could walk from the funicular station at Tignousa to the top of Mount Bella Tola for panoramic views of some incredible mountain peaks (all over 4000 metres) before heading back to St-Luc.
    St-Luc to Zinal: 15km, 5hrs
    For a change of scenery, walk from St-Luc to Zinal at the head of the valley, taking either a low-level or high-level route, enjoying views of several impressive peaks along the way. Zinal has been popular with walkers since the mid-19th century and older residents still recall women walking in the mountains in long skirts. There is also a small folk museum here showing how people lived in former times. To return to St-Luc from Zinal you can take the postbus, using your free travel pass.
