The thousand-year-old hospice in Great St. Bernard is the point of departure for this hike.
The Saint Bernard dog is a special symbol of Switzerland. Everyone knows that the large and good-natured Barry saved the lives of lost mountaineers. The four-legged hero has always been bred at the Alpine Pass of Great Saint Bernhard.
The Val Ferret valley presents peace and tranquillity in authentic manner. And best views of the region are clearly enjoyed from the «Fenêtre de Ferret» on the pass crossing.
