Walk - Solalex-Bretaye

This athletic hike includes several viewpoints with stunning panoramas.

From Solalex, follow a path up through the alpine meadows to La Merine then Les Chaux. Then, walk round the top of the chair lift to Taveyanne along the path heading up towards La Croix des Chaux.
When you get to Taveyanne, take the opportunity to stop at the hut to regain your strength or have a drink. From Taveyanne, take the path down to the La Place crossroads. Then head for the Alpage du Col de La Croix along the path which starts out flat then climbs through the alpine meadows.

The Alpage du Col de La Croix is a traditional dairy where Etivaz, our typical mountain cheese, is made. Then head for Ensex along an easy path for about 1 hour, with an easy finish to Bretaye. You can then take the BVB cogwheel train back to Villars.
