Browsing the "Vanil Noir Massif" Tag

Vanil Noir is a peak at an altitude of 2389 m, giving its name to the eponymous massif. The Massif du Vanil Noir is part of the Fribourg prealps, as are the Massif du Moléson, Dent de Ruth, Kaiseregg-Schopfenspitz and La Berra. Vanil Noir is a fairly popular massif as it is located just opposite the village of Gruyères, which is very popular with tourists all year round. Seven peaks make up the massif, including the Dent de Broc overlooking the Col des Combes, the Dent du Chamois located just next door, the Dent du Bourgo, the Vanil Carré and the Gros Perré. From Gruyères, access to the Col des Combes is not the easiest since the grassy slope joining the pass is very steep. A break in Gruyères on the way back around a meringue bathed in double cream is undoubtedly a well-deserved break after hard work!
