Guided tour for schools

Until 22 October 2023

Located at the bottom of the Val des Dix, an hour from Sion by car or post bus, the Grande Dixence dam site can be visited freely throughout the summer from mid-June to mid-October.

On the programme, discover the exhibition pavilions, take a guided tour inside the impressive wall, climb to the top of the dam on foot or by cable car, take a walk on the Sentier des Bouquetins and don’t forget to try out the zip line, a 700 m thrill along this imposing concrete colossus!

Relaxation with your students at the multi-site museum in Hérémence. What were their grandparents’ work tools used for? Possibility to test these old tools with a competition. The children will all leave with a small souvenir.

  • The special bus ride from Sion and surroundings
