6 Ideas For Chatel Summer Hiking

Chatel lies in the Portes Du Soleil region on the Swiss, French border. In winter it’s a vast alpine playground for skiing & snowboarding. In summer & early fall, it’s a wonderful area for hiking.

Read on for a list of favourite walks, both easy and strenuous, for Chatel summer hiking.


My first recommendation for Chatel summer hiking is Morgins. It’s just right for an easy day. Take the lift and follow the ridge to Col des Portes du Soleil.

Walking across to Col de Vernaz before the long climb starts up to Les Cornette de Bise. Soak up the summit views and look out for chamois.

This is an out and back climb from Lac de Vonnes. On a clear day the views are exceptional and the ridge has an abundance of wild flowers.

Portes d’Onnaz

A favourite walk for a rest day. Take the lifts from Chatel up to Le Morclan. Portes d’Onnaz is a short walk above the top of the lift.

Don’t be intimidated by the exposed sections marked on the map. It’s a straight forward climb, just strenuous and steep.
