Martigny – Bruson : la forêt des mélèzes
au départ de la gare CFF Martigny
Start your journey from Martigny railway station heading towards the village of Saxon. This route will take you through the many apricot orchards. When you arrive at the entrance of the village of Saxon, take the first exit off the roundabout in the direction of Sapinhaut.
From here begins the long climb to the Col du Lein. Along the way you stop to quench your thirst at the Auberge de la Pleyeux. Throughout the ascent you will be able to admire the majestic Pierre-Avoi.
When you arrive at the Col du Lein, you can relax and enjoy some of the wonderful local produce available at the Alpage du Lein café. A pretty descent comes next that will take you through the village of Levron as well as Vollèges, via Cries.
Then follow the main road towards Châble. At the entrance of Val de Bagnes, cross the bridge that is on your right and go in the direction of Bruson. When you arrive in this small sunny village in the Vallée de Bagnes, don’t forget to visit our cheese ambassador, the famous Eddy Baillifard. You may have the opportunity to enjoy a well-deserved raclette. Once you have rested and eaten, get back on your bike and head for Châble. The journey back to Martigny is done by road.
Le village: témoin du secteur de l’exposition Nationale de 1964, consacré à la terre, le village de Bruson a fait l’objet d’un programme d’action pour améliorer son avenir du point de vue agricole et touristique.
