  • Beautiful small island in the Lake of Gruyère, accessible by boat or on foot according to the season. Nice place. No restaurant or store. Just to charm.

  • Since the time that we see him passing on the highway... Rent a canoe for an hour on the shore. Aperitif on Ogoz island, with barely 15 minutes fast access and an absolutely beautiful environment on the island. We have the impression of being in a movie. Few people despite the weather. Superb!

  • Initially from the shore, renting of canoe or paddle, with kayak adventure, beautiful setting, and opportunity to go up to Ogoz island.
