The bisse de Vex has been an integral part of our heritage since... 1453
! Abandoned in the second half of the 20th century, it was refurbished and re-filled with water in 1989 to the joy of all hikers. Extremely well maintained and closely observed during the summer months, this walk attracts a great number of visitors.
On the part of the bisse between Veysonnaz and Planchouet, the children can search for clues and set off on their own adventure discovering, in a fun and educational manner, loads of information about the surrounding nature thanks to a treasure hunt
. Every year the treasure hunt deals with a new theme.
The bisses are, in general, walked in a there-and-back manner. Count about 2h10 from Veysonnaz to Planchouet and 2h00 from Planchouet to Veysonnaz.
A good tip : Nendaz and Veysonnaz Tourisme have organized a "bisses shuttle bus"
which allows visitors to go one way by bus and come back on foot along the beautiful bisses Vieux or du Milieu and the bisse de Vex (about 14 km, 4 h)
: Veysonnaz Tourisme or Planchouet.
