Located in the heart of Orbe, this paid parking is the ideal starting point to explore the streets of the city. Wine tourism walkers can leave their car there before being guided by their smartphone.
This interactive trail includes a "Pied du Jura" loop to the north of about 14 km and a "Panoramic vineyard" loop to the south of about 12 km. From this car park, the PostBus allows the walking time of both loops to be shortened.
On the "Pied du Jura" loop, PostBus 680 in the direction of Yverdon-les-Bains takes hikers to Valeyres-sous-Rances or Rances. At the "Restaurant" stop in the first village, there are two options to choose from: walkers either follow the remainder of the "Pied du Jura" loop and its 10 km leading back to Orbe on foot, or finish with a mini loop of 3 km between Valeyres-sous-Rances and Rances.
To shorten the "Panoramic vineyard" loop, likewise take PostBus 680 in the direction of Agiez and stop at Agiez (Vers-le-Pont stop) to cut off 3.5 km or Arnex-sur-Orbe (Poste stop) and cover the last 5.5 km of the route.

Free and unlimited parking is available at Puisoir, in the lower part of the town along the river towards the football fields.
We hope that you make wonderful discoveries along the wine tourism walk in the Côtes de l'Orbe region!
