This athletic walk will delight lovers of alpine scenery with a difference. From the gypsum pyramids of the Col de la Croix to the recognisable face of the Miroir d'Argentine which you can see from Solalex.
Starting from Col de la Croix, head for the alpine dairy of the same name, where Etivaz AOC, a cow’s milk-based cheese, is still made. Then walk back down to Coufin, then towards the authentic village of Taveyanne, where you can stop off at the Taveyanne restaurant to refuel. Then continue towards Les Chaux, where a restaurant-guest house is open during the summer. Then head towards La Poreyre and then left to Solalex.
