Description

Try the off-road scooter, a fun and sporty activity to be practiced on this advanced level itinerary which links the Roc d'Orsay to Villars.

From Villars, take the Roc d'Orsay cable car. Once at the top, on a scooter adapted for all-terrain use, start this route in the direction of Bretaye while following the red markings of the trottin'herbe. Take the tarmac road and just before arriving at Les Bouquetins, take the small road on the right towards La Berboleuse.
