Immerse yourself in Swiss tradition on this walking tour exploring Switzerland’s Pays d’Enhaut and Saanenland regions. Experience classic Switzerland in one week-long adventure; fantastic hiking trails, wooden chalets, rich cheese, world-class milk chocolate and countless Alpine cows! Start in the hilltop town of Gruyères. Wander the medieval streets and visit La Maison de Gruyères to watch the master cheese makers at work. Follow a peaceful riverside path to the Cailler Chocolate Factory— this area is a foodie’s paradise! Continue to Rougemont, a typical Swiss village with flower-lined chalets and views of La Videmanette mountain. Finish in famous Gstaad.
