The presence of the dogs in the place that gave the breed its name is firmly rooted in the Barry Foundation’s mission. At the pass, visitors can tour the kennels and witness the different forms of care given to the St. Bernards every day. The visit continues with the Museum of the Hospice of the Great Saint Bernard Pass, where the history of the pass, from ancient cults to modern-day hospitality, comes to life.
In July and August, you can also enjoy the unique experience of hiking with the St. Bernards in the area surrounding the Hospice. Reserved for experienced hikers, this activity requires advance booking.
