An excursion into the La Grande Cariçaie nature reserve offers a particularly special experience. One of the routes starts in Yvonand and leads along the southeast shore of Lac de Neuchâtel as far as Estavayer-le-Lac. A divine route through marshlands and lakeside woodlands.

The route runs mostly through wooded lakeside marshland, which is home to a wealth of fascinating fauna and flora. You pass lush vegetation made up of lakeside woodland, moorland and wetland. The region is well-known as a spawning ground for amphibians as well as a reserve for waterfowl and a migratory birds.

Along the way you'll enjoy a primeval, peaceful area that never fails to impress with its unspoilt natural beauty. The scenery then changes to an open, lush-green swathe of land with views over a picturesque region. You pass fields of tall flowers, meadows in bloom and inspiring moorland areas. There is also a vantage point where you can take a break.

In Cheyres you return to civilization for a short time and at the harbour you catch sight of the imposing Lac de Neuchâtel. The route continues through captivating natural surroundings to Estavayer-le-Lac. A pretty little town with an attractive, historic town wall. But the spaciously arranged harbour and well-cared-for boat station are also well worth stopping for.
