Trail of the senses

The Trail of the Senses is a fun and learning walk that forms a 2.7 km loop in the forest of La Tzoumaz where you can discover nature through the 5 senses quiz.

The House of the Forest

The House of the Forest is the starting point of the trail. Situated on the heights of the Rhône valley, the House of the Forest is a café like no other.

There are also fun exhibitions on local animals and birds, local produce, and different activities nature oriented, that you can do on your own or as a family.
