The glittering water of the lake, fragrant herbs on its shore, blooming mountain meadows with fluttering butterflies and rugged rocks on the way to the Cabane des Marindes await you on our hike around the Lac de Montsalvens and through the Vanil Noir nature reserve.

Aline Hayoz-Andrey loves being close to nature and knows the flora and fauna around the lake and in Vanil Noir. She will take you on a very special tour where you will collect herbs such as oregano or stinging nettle on the lush shores of the Lac de Montsalvens.
