The wide valley floor of the Vallon de St-Imier, through which the small Suze river flows, is perfect for short as well as longer walks. Tours here are ideally suited for a combined visit to the Camille Bloch chocolate factory with its visitor centre.

The wide valley floor of the Vallon de St-Imier, through which the small Suze river flows, is perfect for short as well as longer walks. Tours are ideally suited for a combined visit to the Camille Bloch chocolate factory in Courtelary. A predominantly flat hiking trail leads from Corgémont alongside the normally quietly babbling brook. But this can also be different when, after heavy rainfall, the brook swells to become a large turbulent river that threatens to overflow its banks. The highlight of this tour are without question the popular "Ragusa" and "Torino" classics made by Camille Bloch. Founded in 1929, the company constructed a modern visitor centre in 2017 that offers an interactive tour, a bistro and shop. Chocolate lovers will gain interactive insights into the family story and the production processes on a family-friendly tour. Introductory courses delving into the secrets of chocolate production can also be booked.
