21st SMUGGLERS’ TRAIL, SUNDAY 19 MARCH 2023 (Cancelled)
Go off and discover the magnificent summits around Praz-sur-Arly, either on snowshoes or sealskin skis, with the Praz Montagne Club. An unusual hike following in the footsteps of the smugglers and customs officers of yesteryear. It’s a really fun walk!
