Epicurean Path

Epicureans are also adventurers! It's up to you to choose the ideal place during the hike to enjoy the fondue prepared by yourself.

The route, especially designed for families with children, will take you from Rathvel to the top of Niremont. From there, you will have a breathtaking view on the Prealps. Along the path, you can also meet 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 (Phone: +41 21 948 84 56) to pick up the fondue kit as well as the cheese. We also suggest you bring your own picnic blanket.
