Take advantage of the moonlight to walk without headlamps through the forests and over the Jura peaks with incredible views, and enjoy an award-winning fondue

We will walk on easy paths, between forests and ridges and enjoy, weather permitting, beautiful views of the sky, the plain and Lake Geneva. On the way we will stop to observe the tracks and listen to the sounds of the forest inhabitants. Then we will take a break to enjoy a fondue with tea and good wine outside.
