Naturpark Pfyn-Finges - Over the Torrent alp towards Folljeret and Leukerbad through alpine meadows and peaceful woods.

From Leuk railway station take the bus to Flaschen (Albinen), from there you can start directly on foot or for the first leg, take the cable car up to the middle station. If you are lucky you can see how alpine cheese is made in the show dairy directly below the middle station.
Then follow the hiking trail above the idyllic Torrent alp in the direction of Folljeret and Leukerbad over alpine meadows and through woods.
Then zigzag down through the forest belt to Leukerbad and enjoy the unforgettable view to the face of the Gemmi. 
As a finale, you have earned a dip in the thermal waters, where we can loosen your tired limbs and just relax.
