Combine your love of delicious food and the great outdoors with this family-friendly gourmet trail. Along the way, you will have the chance to sample regional delicacies in quaint mountain restaurants and cafés, such as regional cheese and meat specialities, as well as meringues served with a generous helping of Gruyères double cream.
Leave your car in the parking lot of Rathvel. Climb up on the path of the chapel to the «Cabane du Petit Oiseau» alpine hut. While you taste Fribourg Region's specialties on the terrace, the children will be able to make a «P'tit Train» tour and pet pigs, goats as well as rabbits around the hut. Then go down to the pond and follow the path until Villard Dessous. From there, turn off to the left and follow the path until the «Gros Plané» alpine hut. At this point, savour chalet soup and cheese assortment. Then retrace your steps and go to the «Chalet Incrota», where meringues and double cream will wait for you.
