Col du Sanetsch Switzerland

Views: 3063

Our first trip to Switzerland so we thought we’d explore one of the country’s best kept secrets, the 2,253m high Col du Sanetsch in Valais. I’ve always been intrigued by this climb but with relatively little information available on it we’re very pleased to be joined by local expert Alain Rumpf from Grand Tours Project on a 33km journey from Sion to the summit and beyond!

I hope you enjoy!
