Immerse yourself in the heart of the fascinating history of salt by walking along the remains of an ancient wooden brine pipeline which transported, through pleasant countryside, the waste water of the very first salt source discovered more than five centuries ago in Switzerland.
From Salin sur Ollon to the saltworks of Bévieux near Bex, the Sentier du Sel will captivate you all along the way with exciting educational panels animated with witty eloquence by Salitsa, the little salt shaker. The trail leads you across forests, meadows, charming villages, vineyards and cascading rivers in an Alpine setting.
An initiatory journey which reveals the incredible history of the grains of salt coming out of your salt shaker…
