In the middle of the mysterious land of absinthe, the magnificent waterfall of Môtiers and the beautiful forest hike in the Poëta-Raisse gorge.

Not far from the charming village of Môtiers and its Absinthe House, the Rousseau waterfall and its eponymous cave mark the beginning of a hike full of contrasts. This is where the gorge trail begins, through a series of ravines and waterfalls. A setting worthy of the land of absinthe, from which a fairy could well emerge... A green alpine landscape follows on the descent to Fleurier.
