Departing from Nendaz Tourisme, cross the resort following the route des Ecluses. At the end of this road, continue along the chemin de la Fragnière and follow it uphill through the residential area of the same name.

Once you reach the forest, follow the route de la Péroua to the large hairpin bend and then continue downhill for about 500 metres on the route des Crettaux. From there, take the small forest road leading up on your left.

This flat road allows you to discover the mid-mountain pastures of Les Pras, located on the municipality of Isérables, and offers an incredible view of the Rhone Valley as well as the resort of La Tzoumaz.

At the end of the flat part of the road, retrace your steps to the hairpin bend of the route de la Péroua.

From there, go up past the Forestry Commission's offices and then follow the Chemin des Rairettes downhill to your left. Follow this road to the pretty Rairettes chapel and then on to the Clèves quarter.

Enjoy the view over the town of Sion and the Rhone Valley, then continue your final descent to the resort along the route des Clèves.
