“On a hot day if you fancy something different to do with the kids take the train to les Marecottes zoo and swimming pool. It can get quite busy during the day but it empties towards the evening. It is a lovely pool in the rocks. ”

Natural Feature
“There's a fantastic sledge run down from near the top of Col du Forclaz to Trient village. The start is near the footbridge over the road. You can rent sledges at Auberge du Mont-Blanc in Trient. You really need one person to be the chauffeur taking people and sledges to the top of the hill. It's a 2km track and advisable to wear helmets. It's a fast track.”

“In this amphiteather, every year you'll see outside movies, in automne, typical shows with cows from the area (Hérens cows). Also, it's a Roman place to see for free and next to it, is the dog's house "La maison du chien" where you can have a drink or a dessert.”
