The Swiss canton of Fribourg is located in the western parts of the country and right at the heart of Europe.

Escape into the green paradise of Fribourg

One of the most magnificent places in Fribourg is the Gotteron Valley. This mystical valley follows the gorge of river *** into a dense forest, considered dreadful in past centuries; the knights in Medieval times believed that a fierce dragon lived deep in the forest and never dared to step foot here. Fortunately there is nothing else here except for amazing nature! At the entrance of the valley you will find the Fountain of Faithfulness, believed to bring luck and happiness to those passing by who believe in its powers. Continuing on this path, a series of small wooden bridges and study wooden steps will help you make your way through this idyllic landscape.

For a bit bigger dare in terms of exercise, you can head to Jaun River and explore the area along the river bank. There are multiple cascades as well as a waterfall. This natural wonder is located right outside the village of Jaun – a picturesque village filled with small wooden houses, warm and welcoming citizens. Except for enjoying the magnificent waterfall which spurts 6,000 liters of water per second at specific periods of the year, you can also dive in the culture of this Swiss region by personally experiencing it through the tales, cuisine and customs of the local population.

Explore the canton through these activities

A great way to discover the stunning nature of this Swiss canton is hiking through one of its most beautiful areas – the Gorges de la Jogne. On the main trail you will walk against the river current through tunnels, footbridges and breathtaking views. The water is turquoise and clear, there are rest areas for a picnic and you will have plenty of opportunities to admire the local flora and fauna. Further on the trail, you will eventually arrive at a dam, where you can rest and take in the beauty of the Lac de Montsalvens.

Amazing spot for outdoor activities is the Swartzsee Lake. Have fun together with the whole family in the lake area, where you can try canoeing, kayaking or board paddling, ride a pedalo boat or go fishing. There are multiple hiking paths which offer great views of the lake panorama with the nearby hills. There is also a waterfall on one of the trails, which seems to be a great activity for those who wish to combine the pleasant times near water with a bit of exercise.
