Le Pinocchio, 2100m

Adventure forest Vercorin

The Adventure Forest, situated above Vercorin in the middle of the Sigeroulaz alpine pastures, invites you to discover a wealth of new sensations. You move from tree top to tree top at your own speed, meeting the challenge of each new obstacle as it occurs: suspension bridges, creepers, aerial cableways, etc.

Children’s Snow Playground

Children really do feel at home in a Swiss Snow Kids Village run by the Swiss Ski and Snowboard Schools. Here they are taken good care of by highly-trained instructors and by Snowli, the cute mascot.

Living heritage: patois, carnival and national dress

The dialect in the Val d'Hérens is particularly strong. On high days and holidays, people wear traditional costume with bright head-squares and aprons made of velvet and silk. On 6 January, bells ring in the start of Carnival; the "Carnaval d'Hérens" is famous for its "Peluches" (wooden masks) with cat, fox and wolf faces. The people wearing the masks mingle with the spectators and play all kinds of pranks.
