The Three Lakes Trail goes through the nature reserves on the south bank of Lake Neuchâtel and its remarkable reed belt. Platforms invite interested persons to observe the flora and fauna and offer a fantastic view of the wetlands.
The hike is an experience for adults and children alike - apart from a detour to Mont Vully, it goes along the banks of the lakes. This means that it is possible to join the route anywhere, to tackle each stage as a separate one-day tour and also combine it with a boat trip.
Highlights along the way are the BirdLife Nature Centre “La Sauge” and the Grande Cariçaie, the largest wetland area situated on a lake in Switzerland. Roaming the reeded inlets on hazardous wooden walkways is an experience that involves all the senses.
You become more aware of nature here: listening to and looking at the creatures creeping and flying, identifying rare plants or climbing up the lofty tower and observing animals.
Camping by the lakeside, spending the night in a cosy Auberge in the nature reserve or in a historic hotel in the small towns of Estavayer and Murten.
History, vineyards, cuisine: Vully is a popular destination for hikers. On the historic trail through the smallest Swiss wine-growing area you can travel back to the beginnings of Western Switzerland and enjoy wonderful panoramas.
It is possible to join the vineyard educational trail "La Riviera" in Sugiez, Praz or Môtier; it runs between the vineyards. On the way there are various interpretative panels with interesting information about Vully wine. The trail goes uphill and downhill, past countless vineyards, across the rolling hills of Vully.
The hike goes from Estavayer via Cheyres and back to Estavayer and enables visitors to discover the Grande Cariçaie on the south bank of Lake Neuchătel. The nature reserve offers protection to 800 plant species and more than 10,000 animal species, which characterise the banks under the watchful eyes of hikers.
You can discover La Molière Tower on this hike. It is the sole remains of the impressive castle and the small medieval town that once stood on the hill.
A tropical climate prevails under several domes. The jungle trek goes through a mangrove swamp and ponds with orchids. 1,001 butterflies enchant visitors with their ballet and the nocturnal animals remain unperturbed.
