Chamois Rut

Nov 6, 2021
Château-d'Oex - Sport

A little-known period of a species emblematic of our regions

At the beginning of November, the herds left the mountain pastures, calm has returned. A few stones are rolling, two chamois are chasing each other. Crazy race between contenders with the sole aim of chasing the intruder out of its territory. Undoubtedly the rut of the chamois has begun.

A breakaway in the Ciernes Picat region in the company of Jean-Claude Roch, wildlife warden, to witness the period of the chamois' crazy love affair.

Given the early start of the hike, an offer with overnight stay and breakfast is proposed. In the flavours of the region, picnics, made with products labelled "Parc", can be ordered and tasted during the activity.
