Naturpark Pfyn-Finges - A theme trail about the vineyards, the wine-growers and the landscape.

Distance 8 km
Time required 2 h 15
Altitude difference: Ascent 260 m
Altitude difference: Descent 210 m

On the 8km long vineyard trail from Sierre to Salgesch, you walk along vineyards, past wine-growers' quarters and stroll through the wild natural landscape of the Raspille gorge. The 80 information signs placed along the side the trail tell about life in the vineyards, about the landscape and its inhabitants.

The vineyard trail connects the Valais Wine and Wine-Growing Museum located in Sierre and Salgesch. The museums describe the long history of wine between tradition and passion. A tasting session of the exquisite wines is extremely rewarding, too.
