Nestled at the top of the Val de Bagnes, the Mauvoisin Dam is one of our many day trips. The iconic structure promises a thrilling blend of adventure and natural beauty with a breathtakingly beautiful view: lake, waterfalls, mountains, and valleys as far as the eye can see.
What is Mauvoisin Dam?
The Mauvoisin Dam is a majestic concrete arch dam located in the Val de Bagnes, a picturesque valley in the southwestern part of Switzerland. Standing proudly at an impressive height of over 250 meters (820 feet), this engineering wonder was completed in the 1950s. Its primary purpose is to harness the untamed power of the Dranse de Bagnes River and regulate its flow to generate hydroelectricity.
