Espace Découvertes

An educational area to present the missions of the Parc Jura vaudois

Enter the world of the Parc naturel régional Jura vaudois thanks to its "Espace Découvertes" at the Marchairuz Pass! Here you can discover projects related to the landscape, biodiversity, slow tourism, the promotion of local products and the local economy or with education for sustainable development.

There are two trails to explore in the surrounding area:
- The Sentier du Sapin à Siméon, 1.5 km from the pass in the direction of Bière, describes the natural riches and tells the sylvopastoral history of the Park.
- The Wood Ant Trail, at the Marchairuz pass, presents this little insect in a playful and educational way for the pleasure of young and old.
