Nature trail from Nax to Eison

On this 15 km long educational trail, you cross bubbling streams, follow the course of three "suonen" ("bisses", ancient water courses) and gain an insight into the typical way of building barns, sawmills and mountain huts in this region. An illustrated guide describes the fauna, flora and buildings you'll see along the trail. Each thing to look at along the way is marked with a number to match the description.

"Didaludic" play and learn trail

A 3.8 km long circuit at an altitude of 1800 m, between Thyon and Les Collons. The educational trail and information panels have been designed by schoolchildren. They cover five topics in German, English and French: Marmots, Birdsong, Bears, Ants and Green Energy. You should allow two hours for the walk and games; the starting point is by the tennis courts in Thyon; halfway round, you can have a rest at "Gouilli d'en bas" where there's a pond.

Cow fights in Valais (VS)

Cow fights take place as cows seek to establish their ranking in the herd. This natural behaviour takes place when the cattle are brought together for the Alpine summer. The strongest cow, known as the "queen", will lead the herd. In addition to these spontaneous clashes, there are also organised fights in the spring involving Eringer and Evolène cows to determine a regional and cantonal queen.

Cow fights take place throughout the region in which the Hérens breed has its home (Central Valais, Valle d'Aosta in Northern Italy).
