Epicurean Path

Epicureans are also adventurers! It's up to you to choose the ideal place on the hike to enjoy the fondue prepared by yourself with the kit that we provide. The route is especially designed for families with children who are good walkers, and it will take you from Rathvel to the top of Niremont for some breathtaking views. Don't forget you can also meet the farm animals at the Cabane du Petit Oiseau. Before starting the hike, you will need to call in at the Tourist Office of Les Paccots to pick up the equipment and the cheese for the fondue, and we also suggest that you bring your own picnic blanket.
