The challenging day tour from Saas Fee via the Balfrinalp to Hannigalp above Grächen rewards trekkers and hikers with grand vistas, four-thousand-meter peaks, stunning nature and in the solitude of mountains off the beaten track. The diverse route at times follows dizzying trails through rocks, across scree fields and lush Alpine meadows dotted with flowers. It often runs alongside the Suonen-, the traditional irrigation canals of the Valaisian Alps.
