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".
Hot and cold drinks and a daily soup are available. Dried sausages are also available, perfect for an aperitif. It is possible to picnic on the premises if you buy drinks from the alpine hut.
