Switzerland is such a wonderful place in summer and many people who adore it for winter sports often don’t realise it can be even more beautiful in summer.
Â There are so many things to do from sightseeing and cultural visits, to sailing on the lakes and walking in the mountains – even summer skiing on the glaciers.
In summer the Moleson area is renowned for its splendid walking paths, including a botanical walk especially marked for rare plants and a cheese route, visiting many of the cheese-producing farms. The main lifts and the two mountain restaurants, one with an excellent observatory, are open from mid-June to mid-October for those of preferring to take things a little easier.
Â The interspersed farms surrounding the chalet make GruyÃ¨res, Vacherin and Serac cheeses in cauldrons over open wood fires. The old farm in the heart of the village is now a traditional cheese-making centre. It opens from May to October and also has displays of local interest.
Summer sporting activities are also well supplied. In the village are floodlit tennis courts, a mini-golf course, a children’s play area, archery lessons, ‘petanque’, a bob-luge and grass scooters.
Â Trout fishing, windsurfing and pony trekking are also available locally. For the more adventurous there is rock climbing, rafting, canyoning, paragliding and other â€˜extremeâ€™ sports.
Further information is available from the tourist office in the square. Here you’ll also find a village shop, a restaurant-cafe, pizzeria, and a ski shop.
