Martigny to Orsieres – 20km: This is a challenging day of walking that has great rewards both in the views you gain and the satisfaction of this level of trail. It was one of my favourite days. I found the challenge and help provided to me by others incredibly rewarding. I would make a change to our itinerary however, I would book two nights at Orsieres, walk to Sembrancher the first day then catch the train to Orsieres. The next day, I would take the train back to Sembrancher and walk the last 8km! If you are over 60 and have the time, consider this as on option! Our accommodation in Orsieres was fabulous and our host there very special so an additional night would be a pleasure.
