Chemin des Trois-Lacs

A feast of facts on flora and fauna along the fragile shores in the the BirdLife nature centre in La Sauge. By boat through the Broyekanal or climb Mont Vully with superb views of «Three Lakes Country». Murten, a medieval old town with city walls and towers.
The beach in Portalban, with its vast stretch of sand and grass, is particularly popular with families. Then head towards Cudrefin. Its nature reserve, with its shallow waters, lakeside wetlands, low marshes and riparian forests, is mainly a resting place and source of food for ducks and migratory wading birds. It is also a wintering site for rare birds such as the merlin, Eurasian curlew and several species of goose. The BirdLife nature centre in La Sauge is a good place to stop.

The route continues, first on a path alongside the La Broye canal and then climbing up through the forest to Mont Vully, from where there are stunning views over the Three-Lakes Region. From Sugiez, the path continues towards Murten, via the Chablais forest. Numerous observation towers offer you the chance to admire the wildlife along the banks.

You will arrive in Murten, a charming, small mediaeval town that is well worth a visit, with its museum and city walls or just for a stroll under the arcades.
