Charmey-La Valsainte

Discovering the agricultural trail

The region of Charmey, at the heart of Gruyère, is home to verdant natural environments that are accessible to everyone. A number of hikes provide the perfect way for visitors to enjoy the landscapes. The region offers plenty of activities for families, couples and friends. 

Lovers of hiking can explore the agricultural trail and discover its ecological network − created by the Pays-d’Enhaut Regional Nature Park − which links together biodiversity-friendly agricultural areas, woodland structures and other refuges for animal life. There are two routes starting in Charmey:

  1. Montminard travel route from the Musée de Charmey to the Montminard mountain pasture
  2. Charrière travel route and footpath
    This route can be taken in both directions with our Postbus.

Whether on foot, by bike, by e-bike or on board one of our Postbuses, take in the charm of the stunning Jogne Valley in Charmey.
