Le Jorat - Trois Lacs - Emme (Route no. 44)

"An ideal cycle ride for families! With our two children, we set off in the morning from Payerne towards Murten. Passing through the district of Broye and arriving in Murten were some of the highlights of our trip. After a short stop-off in the historic town, we gained energy and continued along the vegetable path. Our children found this route through the vegetable fields extremely interesting. Continuously being asked “Daddy, what is this vegetable?”, “Why does it grow like that?”. Even we learnt a lot... Our adventure continued in the same way until Aarberg, where we enjoyed a well-earned ice cream on the terrace of a restaurant in the historic town centre."
