Saint Valentine's Fondue Train

TPF's Vintage Train will take you on a romantic journey all the way to Montbovon, in the heart of the Gruyère region. Start your journey by making your very own chocolate treat at the Maison Cailler chocolate factory (optional activity). Next, board the Vintage Train at Bulle and watch the picture-postcard landscape go by while sipping an aperitif with your Valentine. Upon arrival in Montbovon, enjoy a traditional Swiss fondue before tucking into the Gruyère region's famous dessert of meringue and double cream.
