Waterway trails

Water, its importance, its environment...Two nature trails, close to the city of Fribourg, offer a great outdoor experience that is both relaxing and educational in a setting, idyllic and full of surprises.

Both trails - the lake tour and the three rivers' tour - will take you on a fascinating journey along the waterways of Fribourg. 28 interpretive stops dotted along each route provide a wealth of valuable information and are sure to awaken your curiosity.

This 8 km tour around Lake Pérolles is the ideal way to discover more about the history and evolution of this lake, its myriad indigenous fauna and flora, as well as its geological and hydrological features. It truly is a journey through both nature and time. Participants, young and old, will enjoy a walk through this secluded spot, a stone's throw away from the historic gates of Fribourg.

This 11km tour covers the three major rivers that flow into Lake Pérolles: the Sarine, Glâne and Gérine. Along the way, you will learn interesting facts about the rivers, including the hidden treasures they contain, and discover more about the surrounding forest and flora.
