Vallée de La Brévine
Venture out into the valley which has beaten the historic record of cold temperatures in Switzerland: - 41.8°C!
Freezing temperatures unique in Switzerland
-41.8°C: the valley holds the record for the lowest temperatures measured in all of Switzerland to this day. With its basin-shaped topography, the conditions are ideal for a polar climate in winter, especially when the skies are clear. A particular highlight is the festival ,which takes place every year in February.
Beautiful landscapes in summer and in winter
Pine forests, moors, wide-stretching pastures, herds of cows and typical farms: the region can be enjoyed just as much in summer as in winter. The charming with its deep blue water invites to linger and dream in summer, whereas in winter, it turns into a natural ice rink set against a sparkling, frosty backdrop.
Winter leisure activities
These wild and immaculately white open spaces are ideally conquered on cross-country skis or snowshoes, good exercise to defy the icy temperatures. Refreshing experiences can also be had in summer by dipping into Les Taillères Lake or touring the valley by bike. Whichever activity you choose: breathtaking nature sceneries are guaranteed.
A warm welcome
After the effort some comfort: the locals know how to warm up their guests! There’s no way you can leave without having tasted the regional cheeses with their wildflower flavours, the gentian spirit produced right there, or the famous local absinthe. Regional dishes can also be enjoyed next to a roaring fire at the Auberge du Loup blanc or Chez Bichon, a cosy traditional restaurant in the heart of nature.
