Starting from Charmey, set out to conquer the summit of La Berra. La Berra Offer offers itineraries accessible to all during this overnight stay.
Are you looking to recharge your batteries in the fresh air? Do you dream of spending a night in a mountain gîte? Discover our new package "Trekking en Gruyère: Offre La Berra" and enjoy a stay in the Pre-Alps.
This offer, which is aimed at everyone, proposes two days of hiking between Charmey and La Berra. Including accommodation and meals, this all-inclusive trek allows you to leave with a relaxed mind to discover our beautiful region.
On the first day, hikers begin their excursion in Charmey. Two itineraries - of varying degrees of difficulty - will take you to the Gîte d'Allières, a mountain lodge where you will spend the night. It is in this establishment with an incredible panorama that you will enjoy a local meal, under the glow of the setting sun, blazing behind the Moléson. This exceptional setting invites you to contemplate the end of the day and the rising stars.
Day 2 begins with a tasty breakfast at the Gîte d'Allières. After having obtained the necessary strength for this second day of walking, you set off to reach the summit of La Berra. At the top, the breathtaking 360° view offers exceptional landscapes of the Lac de La Gruyère, the plateau of the Romandie, the Pre-Alps and the Alps.
Optional: you can watch the cheese making at 9.30 am at the alpine hut Hauta Chia. The visit lasts about 1 hour. You will have free time between 10:30 and 12:00 before having your lunch at the alpine restaurant.
The afternoon is devoted to the return to Charmey.
The La Berra Offer welcomes both young and old walkers looking for beautiful views without too much difficulty. A 1:25,000 hiking map completes the offer so that you can see which spot you are passing through or which peak you are looking at.
