The rolling hills, valleys and wild flower meadows in Verbier provide the perfect summer alpine backdrop. Cherries Walks  and Ben Proudlove from Alpine Expertise both offer a range of walks and hikes to suit all comfort levels. Alpine Expertise specialises in providing bespoke alpine treks in both summer and winter, outdoor experiences and training courses, tailored to the individual’s requirements, at home in Valais or further afield in international locations. Many of these walks can incorporate a delicious lunch at one of the great mountain restaurants!

Skiing down a mountain in the winter is one thrill, but being able to hike, or climb up it the following summer really is a mission accomplished!

Verbier offers a complete choice of Summer activities, from 1/2 day walks right through to conquering the Matterhorn, in our neighbouring Zermatt! For something more challenging, perhaps the 5 day Haute Route from Verbier to Zermatt ?

The Verbier stables are open throughout the summer from 8am to 6pm everyday and offer various activities like dressage or jumping lessons. You can learn how to ride in the beautiful mountain setting and they also offer pony rides for children.

In August, Verbier hosts an International Showjumping competition, which sees competitors from 20 different countries compete.

The excellent mountain lift system facilitates exhaustive and exhilarating high level mountain trail riding, means that Alpine Roots can offer full and half day guiding for beginners, intermediates and advanced Mountain bikers. Just like the piste map for skiers, there is a trail map for mountain bikers and hikers which denotes the various trails and the degree of difficulty/skills needed.

Fly High in the sky with Verbier Summits with a Tandem paragliding experience. It’s the ultimate thrill, guests have said “It’s like being Peter Pan. You can’t help but think happy thoughts as you soar over the mountains.”

Verbier has a choice of two Golf Courses, Les Esserts, a 18-hole course measuring 4875m.  With each hole providing stunning views of the surrounding mountain ranges, Combin, Rogneux and Mont-Blanc.  The second course, Moulins, first appeared in Verbier in 1969, it’s right in the centre of town and is a perfect pitch and putt course. If you’re prepared to make the trip to Crans-sur-Sierre, you can experience one of the best courses in the Alps.

Cycling in Verbier and in the Alps in general, is much more demanding than your favourite local route back home. The roads around Verbier may be the setting for some of the most gruelling sections of the Tour de France but they can also be tackled by enthusiasts as well as professionals.

We can arrange anything from a technical clinic to improve your performance or a day, or multi day route so you are free to ride and enjoy the experience in the stunning Valais region of Switzerland.
