Nature has been generous to this part of the country. The Intyamon Valley has preserved its wild character and bucolic landscapes. Villages and meadows, forests and pastures blend harmoniously. As if they came from another era. Thanks to the work of the Regional Nature Park, numerous activities and theme walks present the history and the setting of this valley.

Along the Sarine river, in the valley

Between mountains and river, the Intyamon is aptly named - between mountains in the local dialect. This green valley sees the river Sarine flowing through its countryside. Beautiful hikes make it possible to explore this unspoilt nature without great difficulty. The Sentier des Comtes (Counts' Trail) connects Gruyères with Montbovon, on the edge of the canton. Themed hikes such as the agro-silvicultural trail complete the offer.

Historic villages to explore

Cheese has influenced the organisation of space, the landscape, the architecture of farms and houses. In Estavannens, Villars-sous-Mont, Grandvillard and Lessoc, this rich past can be seen on the buildings and barns' exteriors.
A dedicated trail, the Grandvillard Rural Architecture Discovery Trail, takes you on a beautiful walk through history. Ideal to enjoy with family or friends.
