The story of Simplon village

A culinary journey of discovery through the eventful history of an old Valais village.

The picture-postcard village of Simplon actually has a turbulent history, including periods of famine and emigration as well as a military presence. On a stroll through the village, a local goatherd will tell you stories and anecdotes of what life was like there in times gone by. Along the way, you’ll make three visits to a local inn, on each occasion enjoying one course from a delicious Simplon set menu.
