Randonnée à la Vallée de Joux

Beautiful lakes and wide open spaces

With its lakes, forests and preserved wide open spaces, Vallée de Joux resembles the Far North and attracts many hikers and athletes.

The largest forest of Europe, the largest lake in the Jura chain: nature beats records here, which incites sportspeople to surpass themselves in turn. The lakes are an invitation to practise water sports, while the marked paths attract joggers and mountain bikers. As a more relaxed and contemplative activity, hiking invites you to explore Dent de Vaulion and Mont-Tendre. The Vaudois Jura Park offers workshops and guided walks that explain the scenery shaped by dry-stone walls.
