The Bee Path
Discover the hectic life of bees on this beautiful path between Courtepin and Courtion.
This rural path, animated with 14 panels, reveals in a playful way, the organization, behaviour and vital utility of bees, an insect formerly called "honey fly". This educational hike starts in Courtepin, near the Migros, which is located just 5 minutes away from the train station. From there, head west and follow the path parallel to the Crausa river. Once in Cournillens, near the Bois du Pont district, continue to the sports square located at the east of Courtion. This informative walk for all ages can be done in both directions.
Tip: The queen bee lays up to 2000 eggs a day and can reach an age between 1 and 5 years. Bees have to forage for about 2 million flowers to produce half a kilogram of honey.
