A classic Valais trail race, the Grimpette, or “little climb,” is part of the Valais Cup series. It begins in the ancient valley town of Riddes, passes through town, then climbs steeply past vineyards and the cobblestone roads of the village of Iserable, and finishes with a steep uphill push past a series of farms, to end in a pasture high above the Rhône valley. Be sure not to miss the lunch at the village soccer field, followed by the complimentary tram ride back to the valley.
