HIKE WITH DOGS AT GRAND

Saint Bernard Pass

If you like scenic roads and remote border crossings, the Grand Saint Bernard Pass experience is for you! Between Switzerland and Italy, this 2473 m (8113 ft) pass is home to the legend of the St. Bernard dogs.

ROAD

Your private excursion

01

Your excursion will start early in the morning. Your private chauffeur will drive you to Martigny, in a Mercedes minivan. Your route will continue to alpine valleys, between peaks and typical villages, on a spectacular road.

02

There will be stops to enjoy the breathtaking scenery of Val de Bagnes. The Grand Saint Bernard Pass is snowed in for up to 6 months of the year. This transalpine crossing was so dangerous that some monks established a hospice on the pass in 1049, to provide rescue to travelers lost in the snow.

03

The St Bernard dogs uncovered and rescued travelers until the 1950s, when helicopters were first introduced. In July and August, the Barry Foundation offers the opportunity to accompany the St Bernard dogs on a 1 h 30 hike. Do not miss this unique experience, in a splendid alpine landscape!
