Schwarzsee – Jaun
From charming Schwarzsee to Breccaschlund and into the jagged limestone landscape of the Greyerzer Alps, over the relatively low Euschelspass, carved out by glaciers, to Jaun, the only German-speaking village in the Gruyère region.
Jaun – Gruyères
A valley hike alongside the babbling Jaunbach crossing the language boundary to Charmey, following Lac de Montsalvens, with its many coves, to the dam and the spectacular Jaun-Schlucht gorge down to Broc and the famous Gruyère Castle. After a visit of the chocolate production in Maison Cailler you continue to the famous village of Gruyères.
Gruyères – Les Paccots
With the mighty Moléson in view and the town of Gruyère left behind, you climb to the middle cableway station at Plan Francey. Then hike along the north-west flank of the Moléson and descend to the richly-forested pre-Alpine landscape of Les Paccots.
Les Paccots – Montreux
The hallmarks of Les Pléiades are a white carpet of narcissi in May and fantastic, all-year-round views of Lac Léman and the surrounding Alps. The steep ascent to Blonay can be eased by taking the cogwheel railway.
Montreux – Lausanne
A pleasant hike through the steep Lavaux vineyards, a UNESCO World Heritage since 2007. Along the way you meet the old traditional wine villages of St-Saphorin, Rivaz and Epesses, and the lovely little towns of Cully and Lutry on Lac Léman.
