What you'll do

We will start off by taking public transport to Les Plans-sur-Bex, from where we will hike through a forest along the Avançon river to the entry of Vallon de Nant natural reserve. We will follow the mountain hiking trail through the natural reserve and enjoy impressive views of Grand and Petit Muveran, as well as the glacier of Martinets. Along the way I will tell of reserve's rich geological past and magnificent flora and fauna that it boasts today. Towards the end of the hike we will pass through the tiny mysterious 'Bear Hole' cave, where you will be able to take awe-inspiring photos. This is a mountain hiking trail, so good shoes are absolutely necessary. If you are prone to dizziness and vertigo, I do not recommend that you participate in this hike. This is a round-hike and it will end at the same point where we started. There is also and alpine garden if you interested in exploring the mountain flora of every continent.
Other things to note
I will plan the hike in accordance with local weather forecast and adjust the itinerary if necessary. If you are feeling confident, we may also take a slightly longer trail.

Where you'll be

Our path will follow the Avançon river, first through a forest and then the Vallon du Nant natural reserve. We will also visit the 'Le Trou à l'Ours' cave. This one is my personal favourite. It's tiny but once passing through, you feel like you've travelled through time. The hike goes upwards for about 3/4 of the way. There is a restaurant at the end, in case you are hungry.
