Activities at the Romantik Hotel L'Etoile

Mountain activities in the summer

During your stay at the Romantik Hotel L’Etoile, you can explore the mountains around Charmey on the 250 km of waymarked trails. Whether on foot or bike, novice or seasoned hikers, children and adults alike, the mountain is your oyster. You will be bowled over by the plant life, wildlife and beautiful landscapes.

To reach the summits, hop on the Charmey cable car and travel to Vounetz (1,630 m), which marks the starting point for countless hiking and MTB trails. A magnificent panoramic view will unfold before your very eyes: feast your eyes on the distant Fribourg and Vaud Alps, as well as Montsalvens Lake. A series of "Discovery" trails will take you through the unspoilt natural environment of the summits, winding their way between high-mountain pastures and forest paths. The landscapes can also be discovered from the skies, such as by paragliding.

An adventure park in Charmey provides the ideal escape in the heart of the forest. Try out the zip line for a true white-knuckle experience!

On your hike or discovery tour, you are well provided for with the Romantik Hotel's picnic offers. We are also happy to provide you with a backpack as well as thermos and drinking bottles. Learn more>>

Mountain activities in the winter

The Charmey ski area is suited to every age and level. While soaking up the friendly atmosphere, check out an ideal winter sports destination for the entire family.

The "Rapido Sky" cable car is a mere stone's throw from Romantik Hotel L’Etoile, meaning that you can easily reach Vounetz and the snow-capped peaks. Hurtle down the 30 km of pistes for all levels that snake across the Dents Vertes.

In terms of new winter sports, look no further than the resort's snow park, which is specifically engineered for thrills, moves and speed. A piste is also reserved for sledges and bobsleighs (free for the under-9s) - something to give everyone an adrenaline rush.

Waymarked trails allow snowshoe-trekkers to explore the mountain in complete safety and at their own pace. Cross-country ski fans will relish the 20 km of pistes carving through Jogne Valley.
