Tour description

The «Swift as a Bird» nature trail winds it ways through the majestic Le Bois de Ban, a 17-hectare beechwood forest. At an altitude of 930 metres, this forest dominates the village of Le Crêt and its marsh «la Mosse-d'En-Bas». Follow the woodpecker signs along a woodchip-covered track, from where you can marvel at the diverse bird life that calls this forest home. A guaranteed fun day out for all the family!

Climb into a giant nesting box or admire the view from the lookout perched high up in the trees! Dotted along the trail, interpretive panels provide a wealth of educational and fun facts. The trail has no particularly difficult stretches.
