The Swiss Rhone Valley

By: Globus
Running through the belly of Switzerland, near the Italian border in the region of Valais, the Rhone River has its origins in the Swiss Alps runoff above the Gletsch Glacier. Picking up water as it flows east from Brig, through a glacier valley draining the highest mountains in Switzerland, it moves from a mountain stream to an important riverway.
Its silty torrent carves its way through some of Switzerland’s finest ski areas, including Crans-Montana and Zermatt, and its highest chalet towns and mountain villages. In summer, a boat ride on the Rhone offers grand views of the Swiss countryside. As it nears the French border city of Martigny, the Rhone veers northwest towards Lake Geneva. Here if forms the banks of some of Switzerland’s best vineyards, before hooking up with the flow from Lake Geneva and the Arve River where it enters eastern France. It then runs southeast through Lyon and some of France’s greatest vineyards before emptying in the Mediterranean near Montpellier. Destinations have stories. We bring them to life.
