Summer activities and leisure...

Hikes and walks

Paths always existed for service to the mountain pastures and forests. Certain ones were lost, of which misleading traces sometimes remain. The appearances of the path created by passing cows are also misleading, as well as the paths without an open exit for forest exploitation.

Also, Chatel’s ski station and the National Office of Forests combined their efforts to create a network of marked paths, chosen among the most interesting ones. These paths are marked the whole way on the ground, trees, or rocks with dashes of paint, and the intersections are usually equipped with signposts.

There are about 90 km of marked paths offered in Chatel for anything from one-hour walks to day hikes, to satisfy everyone’s expectations.

YOU CAN ALSO OPT FOR GROUP OUTINGS, SUPERVISED BY CERTIFIED GUIDES.

Each week, these mountain professionals offer your group outings for a half-day, a full day, or several days with nights and meals in a shelter or mountain pasture chalet, and also the opportunity for trekking.
