    Bisse de Clavau Hike

    The Bisse de Clavau Hike is a wonderful adventure in Crans Montana that follows a lengthy water source through a pristine landscape. The Lienne River, which feeds half a dozen bisses in the Crans Montana area, flows through the valley alongside many paths for walks and hikes. Stretching from the plain to the glaciers, there is so much amazing scenery to enjoy on this hike.
