The exceptional location of the Hotel Palafitte will allow you to enjoy the great outdoors like nowhere else.

From its pavilion or nearby, we suggest a few ideas to accompany your stay.

On the water

From your private terrace, access the hotel's largest natural swimming pool! Ideal for a refreshing dip, Lake Neuchâtel has many surprises in store for those who take the time to observe it.

Go and meet it on board our kayaks and stand-up paddle boards, which are available free of charge to our guests.

Not far away, water sports enthusiasts will appreciate a session of towed water skiing on the largest lake in Switzerland.

To enjoy the full extent of the lake, boat rental from the hotel's pontoon can also be arranged.

Halfway between land and air, the Chaumont Adventure Park is a playground for young and old in the heart of the Peseux forest and offers tree climbing courses for all ages and levels.
The site has also created a unique outdoor Laser Game with various scenarios, spread over an area of 5000 m2.

In the air

From Chaumont or from the surroundings of the Chasseral summit, discover the Neuchâtel region from the air with a tandem paraglider.
