The bisses
Here is one of the most popular summer activities in Nendaz and Valais in general, the bisses. Indeed, these hikes, generally rather easy and for any type of walker, offers great memories with family or friends in the Valais Alps. Nendaz is actually a very rich bisses and various hiking possible, which is a great advantage for families and seniors because these walks are very easy and completely free. Its unique network of bisses has no less than 8 bisses (including 6 still in water), a total of 98 kilometers of walks with exceptional views of the mountains. These walks are practicable from spring to autumn non-stop except the "Middle Bisse" which is accessible all year long, summer as well as winter, and which is perfect for snowshoe fans. You will find bisses in Nendaz between 700 and 2300 meters of altitude.

But what exactly is a bisse?
Built by farmers to avoid drought, bisses are simply gathered from larger water sources (including the Printse) and are distributed in the municipality. Today, they represent beautiful walks and are very neat. They offer exceptional freedom feelings in a calm and ideal place to relax with a good breath of fresh mountain air. Very friendly activity, it is common to meet other walkers and share unique conversations. The bisses are the fruit of important work and it is therefore very important to respect them by appropriate behavior throughout the walks.
