The region offers diverse possibilities: easy and intermediate snow shoe trails and winter hiking tracks through the forest, guided ski tours, sledge run from Thyon to Les Collons, ice skating rink in Les Collons and approx. 12 km cross-country skiiing tracks.

Summer info
Summer guests in Les Collons can expect a wide range of activities. Enjouy the fresh mountain air while hiking or mountainbiking: 500 km of walking-/hiking trails and 330 km Mountainbike-Tours are available in the whole region.

Families with kids can enjoy easy walks with no great differences in altitude along the "Suonen" (historic irrigation channels), e. g. Bisse de Vex. The tour 'Val d’Hérens' goes along the hills to traditional villages and hamlets with wooden houses. At the end of the valley you can visit the 285 m high Grand Dixence dam. There is the starting point for walks around the reservoir. Our recommendation: Take the cable car from the bottom of the Grand Dixence dam up to the dam top and there take the nature trail called "Steinbock-Höhenweg" (=capricorne trail) to the Val des Dix. This trail goes via the Pass Col de Roux and offers an amazing view over the reservoir and the snowy peaks. It ends at the reservoir again.

The tours of all difficulties are well signposted and the bikes can be taken in the cables cars during summer.

Other summer activities
Climbing, e.g. at Evolène, paragliding over the Val d’Hérens, horse riding and golf (in Sion). Thermal spa resorts in Saillon-les-Bains, Ovronnaz, Leukerbad and Brigerbad, which all offers a lot of wellness treatments. A close recreational centre with lake is „Les Iles“ near Sion, approx. 30 minutes by car.

Les Collon is situated closely to Italy and France and therefore offers a couple of interessting excursions: The Aletsch glacier which is declared as UNESCO world heritage site; Zermatt with its exceptional view of the Matterhorn; the Mont Blanc-Express train to Chamonix; the historic centre of Sion, which is the capital of the Valais; to the Lake Geneva; or via the Grand St. Bernhard Pass to the Italian Aosta Valley.
