Video | 0:50


Where? Start either at the Buvette La Goille au Cerf or at the Cabane du Petit Oiseau
What? On the hiking trails around Mt. Niremont or at the Rathvel pond you can respectfully observe the animals in the wild. Upgrade your experience with a hiking guide and learn to read animal tracks, to recognize different bird songs, and to read nature. The hiking trails here are very family-friendly.
When? Ideal from mid-May to late September, when the mountain restaurants of Rathvel and Mt. Niremont are open.
Price? Discover nature: free. Hiking guide: upon request
Fun fact: If you see a bird up to 51 cm tall with a red cap, you have just found a black woodpecker. And anyone who runs into an alpaca has probably arrived at the small animal zoo of the Cabane du Petit Oiseau.
