A park to be lived and shared

The surface of Gruyère Pays-d'Enhaut regional nature park is 502 square km: its territory, inhabited by over 12,500 people, is thus larger than some small Swiss cantons, and features exceptional landscapes, a rich biodiversity and agriculture. The park represents therefore a precious link for men, culture and nature.

Situated in the cantons of Vaud and Fribourg, between the Riviera Vaudoise (Montreux) and Bulle, Gstaad and Gruyères, the park preserves a strong country and prealpine identity, as well as a touristic reputation dating back to the XIX century.

Most of the park territory lies between 800 and 2000 metres ASL, and is made up by a mosaic of villages, hamlets, pastures, mountains and forests, with a rich variety of landscapes, fauna and flora. The presence of rich and diverse flora and fauna is made possible by the existence of particularly protected zones, such as the reserves of Vanil Noir, Pierreuse and Etivaz valley, all managed by the association Pro Natura.
