Become a shepherd for a walk at the pace of the herd


In our beautiful Gruyère region, the Chemin du troupeau offers an excursion in the company of our sheep, accompanied by our dogs. Following the rhythm of the flock, this outing is suitable for all walkers, young and old.

Shepherds, shepherdesses... Let's explore at the rhythm of the flock... Let's discover nature and sheep at a different tempo!

Sheep have ancestral links with man. Accompanied by our dogs (and maybe yours!), come and lead them, become a shepherd for the time of a stroll to enjoy the benefits of an outing in their company and rediscover the bonds that unite us!

There are several types of excursion to choose from, varying in length and adaptable to your individual requirements. Contact us to discuss your requirements.

If luck is on our side, we'll be able to observe other animals along the way, unperturbed by the passing sheep. Birds of prey, passerines, roe deer, ermines and other guests of the countryside may be spotted, much to our delight.
