Follow in the footsteps of the smugglers and customs officials who once played cat and mouse in this mountainous border area between France and Switzerland.
To hear these colourful adventures, go to Châtel Tourisme or the Old
Customs House to obtain a battery to activate the audio terminals and a copy of the illustrated route guide for the walk.
Two hikings are proposed:
- a small loop of a medium difficulty level, to discover with your family. Duration: 2h30, altitude difference: 200m.
- a more demanding circular walk that takes you up to altitude along the border ridges! Duration: 5h, altitude difference: 645m.
Before doing those routes get informed about weather forecast and wear adapted shoes and equipment.
