Much to my surprise this beautiful location is not listed as a place to visit. Sion is the capital city of the province of Valais in French Switzerland. A place without pollution and with the charm the old world has to offer. Recommended in any season. If there is snow you can ski , you can always mountain climb, you can go hiking, bike riding, and if you prefer a more sedentary lifestyle, you can enjoy some wine, cheese and spectacular views in the small bars and cafes.
We spent the summer with family in Orbe. From there we traveled to Zion without knowing where we were going, surprise excursion! And what was the surprise ending when it seemed we would never stop going up, up and up ... We arrived at a hotel that was used as shelter workers, What type of workers? ... What a surprise behind that hotel was the Large Dam Dixence ... SPECTACULAR. I have no words.
We hiked accompanied by a guide who took us through the sites in safety. There were times that we had trails that were virtually impossible to pass on several occasions and I was afraid that I would roll down the mountain. In those moments of fear the guide held my backpack and handled me like a rag doll and let me go in a safer place. I felt much safer when we climbed than when we went down, a small slip and you fall on your ass from mid-mountain. The experience was one of a kind.
