Route du Jura - 007

The Jura Route leads through captivating countryside, remote fir-forested plateaux and quiet valleys with rushing streams. On this exceptional route you pedal along far from all hustle and bustle, through wide rolling hills from Basel to Lac Léman.

The Jura Route leads through captivating countryside, remote fir-forested plateaux away from all hustle and bustle, over numerous Jura passes from Basel to Lac Léman. Along the well-forested border-river La Lucelle into the serene hilly landscape of the Ajoie, across to medieval St-Ursanne on the secluded Jura river, the Doubs.

The plateau of Franches Montagnes, a spacious, peaceful landscape with meadows, firs, grazing cattle and horses. In between, the contrast of La Chaux-de-Fonds, the timepiece metropolis. Mighty houses of stone, high moorland rich in plant life, with droning dragonflies, aromatic Vacherin Mont d'Or cheese, the absinth secret – the Grüne Fee (Green Fairy), dainty music boxes and reserved watchmakers – all permeated by mystical waterways.

The cool, clear charm of Lac de Joux at the foot of a huge forest, mountain farms and hundreds of anthills in the peaceful Parc jurassien vaudois, finally without one push on a pedal, down to cheerful Lac Léman.
