This is supposed to be an educational hike about the salt industry, but it’s also a very pleasant hike through varying terrain, starting in the hills above Aigle and finishing in the town of Bex.

GETTING THERE:

Accessible by car or train as far as Aigle – we then ALL take the train from Aigle to Plambuit

If you come by train – buy your SINGLE ticket all the way through to Plambuit as you only have 3 minutes to change trains in Aigle (or get an earlier train). Coming from direction Lausanne – sit near the front of the train. We return from Bex.

If you come by car – allow at least 15 minutes to find a parking space in Aigle (the CFF car park will charge you CHF7 for the day) and buy a SINGLE ticket to Plambuit. We return from Bex..
