Alpine Panorama Trail

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.
From Gruyères, founded in the 12th century, and its castle perched on the hill, head to Pringy and La Maison du Gruyère, demonstration cheese-dairy. Follow the cheese dairies route through La Provêta, where you can observe the typical Alpine chalets of La Gruyère region, some of which operate as Alpine restaurants. Don’t miss the chance to try some local products.

Heading towards Le Gros Plané and the Col de Villard at the foot of the Moléson and Teysachaux, you will see Lake Geneva, the plateau, the Jura and the slopes of the Pre-Alps in the distance. Drop down through the forest to Les Paccots, a delightful family resort where you will find numerous waymarked paths in a Pre-Alpine setting. Explore the local specialities based on your tastes and appetites at your leisure.

Tip: explore the heritage of the Fribourg region all along the route, observing the Alpine chalets, shingles, armaillis (shepherds) and traditional cheese production.
