The gorge of the Jogne river

The gorge of the Jogne river

The Jogne’s gorge is officially open!


One of our favorite hike! Follow the path of the river Jogne through tunnels, along walkways and over bridges. A little adventure for the whole family!

Starting in Charmey, follow the shores of Montsalvens Lake and cross the dam of the same name. Right after the dam, you will start your descent in to the gorge and join the river on its way down the valley. At your arrival in Broc, you will find the chocolate factory maison Cailler just a few more steps downriver.

If you choose to follow the Jogne river upstream from Broc, the hike is a little more demanding but just as beautiful. You can either follow the lake shores all the way to Charmey or catch a bus back to Broc from Châtel-sur-Montsalvens.


Distance: 3.5km


Charmey – Broc: ca. 3h

From the dam downriver to Broc: ca. 1h

From Broc upriver to the dam: ca. 1h30
