Snowshoes : Bretaye-Les Chavonnes-Bretaye

From Lake Les Chavonnes, you follow a trail through snowy forests and meadows towards Laouissalet, through a variety of alpine landscapes.

In the land of mountain lakes, sometimes covered with snow, sometimes with ice, these popular areas for walking in the summer have a completely different look in the winter. Along this trail, you can admire Lake Bretaye, catch a glimpse of Lake Noir and take a break on the shores of Lake Les Chavonnes.
From Villars, you start this trail at Bretaye then head for the tranquil Lake les Chavonnes, with the restaurant of the same name. Then you head off in the direction of Vy-Bovyre and Conche.
Once back in Bretaye, you take the train back to Villars enjoying spectacular views of the Vaudois Alps.
