Parcours Bretaye–Lac des Chavonnes - 467

This snowshoe trail will take you on a discovery of the Bretaye plateau and the delightful scenery around Lake Les Chavonnes. Here you can admire the beautiful reflections of the trees around the edge of this mountain lake.

This typical winter trail takes you on a delightful journey through a changing vista of forests and snow-covered landscapes and past the chalets of Bretaye, a classic village of the region.
From the centre of Villars-sur-Ollon, the famous cogwheel train takes you to Bretaye in 20 minutes. This terminus is where you start your journey to Lake Les Chavonnes. Take the time to admire the peaks all around and soak up the changing views along the way.
You’ll discover three mountain lakes and delightful scenery as you go, and to combine sport and pleasure, make sure you stop at the Restaurant du Lac des Chavonnes.
