Cabane de Bounavaux

On the western face of the Vanil Noir, the Cabane de Bounavaux is located on the nature reserve of the highest mountain in the Fribourg region. The cabin is open every day from end of May to beginning of October. Soup and drinks are available for passing hikers.

Perched on a rocky ridge, the cabin dominates the heights of Grandvillard and welcomes experienced hikers and families alike. At an altitude of 1,620 metres, it is the starting and finishing point for numerous hikes to the surrounding peaks: the Van, the Merlas and the Vanil Noir. The small Lac de Coudré is also located close by, between the car park and the cabin. The hut is located on the "Grand Tour des Vanils".

The dormitories are renovated and comfortable; the space is welcoming and offers 36 beds upon reservation. An exceptional opportunity to enjoy a quiet night and recharge. In the morning, coffee, tea or hot chocolate is served, included in the nightly rate. Watching the sunset behind the Moléson is a privileged moment while savoring fondue or other dishes you have brought along.

Hot and cold drinks as well as a daily soup are available. Dried sausages are also available, ideal for an aperitif. The kitchen is available for preparing your evening and breakfast meals. Picnicking is allowed with beverages purchased on-site.
