Parc naturel régional Gruyère Pays-d'Enhaut
The Gruyère Pays-d'Enhaut Regional Nature Park extends over the cantons of Vaud and Freiburg and stretches from the Vaud Riviera in Montreux to beyond Bulle and from les Mosses to Charmey. The region is characterised by an originally rural identity and a diverse landscape. Centuries of human activity have left their mark on the landscape, so that besides steep cliffs, deep valleys and thick forests, there are also many alpine pastures and mountain meadows. A variety of species thrive in remarkable habitats and nature reserves. Agriculture and alpine farming, their architectural heritage and their products, particularly cheese, still play an important role here today. The park covers an area of 503 km2 and includes thirteen municipalities in four regions.
It is also an ideal location for making families, schoolchildren, hikers and nature lovers aware of the value of nature. The Park offers a wide range of activities both in summer and winter, and these allow the diversity of this unique area to be discovered. These activities include snowshoe walks, walks under the stars, butterfly watching, traditional bread-making workshops, factory tours and last but not least the Day of the Park.
