Enjoy the freshness of the Broye valley, the forests of the plain and the majestic panoramas of the Pre-Alps and the Alps.
From Moudon station, you take a lovely trail south of the town along the water. You have to cross the Broye twice before reaching Bressonnaz and its stone bridge (see pic). Moving on, you will get to the castle of Seppey built in the 16th century, then through the small village of Vulliens, burial place of the painter Eugène Burnand.
On leaving the village, an organic farm with a direct sales area will be the last building before plunging into a forest. Emerging from that forest you’ll already have reached Fribourg soil, in Ecublens. From there, a beautiful view of the Alps and the Glâne, with the magnificent historic village of Rue on the left and Promasens a little further on. At Promasens, you cross the stream Le Parimbot and the river La Broye, before continuing on your way towards Chapelle and the highest point of your walk, at 730 m.
You then continue to Oron, more precisely in front of its imposing castle – a visit is a must! – and then you will be on the home straight of your walk. Your goal for this hike is the station of Oron-le-Châtel, from where you can take the train to Moudon.
