Tour description

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.

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.
