Do you know the story of the Devil of Sofleu? Or that of the monstrous beast of Louvie? Nendaz and its surrounding area is packed with myths and legends that were told by our ancestors, and then handed down from generation to generation. Together, these stories make up an incredibly valuable intangible cultural heritage - and we're delighted to be sharing that heritage with you today.

This trail is a fantastic way to encounter sculptures that depict local legends. They can be easily accessed by even the smallest children, who will delight in imagining the incredible epic stories of the things that have happened in our mountains.

Starting at Nendaz Tourism, follow the 'Promenade des Crêtes' panels and admire the magnificent craft of the many local artists who specialise in wood sculpture. The walk will take you across fields and woodland through little-known areas of the village of Haute-Nendaz, as well as places that are closer to nature.

For the children, a treasure hunt is also organised along this path.
