Taveyanne-Solalex Bike - 582

Bucolic itinerary in the countryside during which you will appreciate the peace and quiet of the Culan cirque and of the hamlet Taveyanne. You will also discover the Frience Alpine meadows with the Argentine massif and the Muveran mountain chain as a backdrop.

Departing from Place Barboleuse, ascent towards Chaux up to Frasses, where you will be able to enjoy a breath-taking view of the neighbouring mountain chains.

The black Taveyanne sandstone (greenish rock with small black circles) is the proof of volcanic activity in the region. The small black circles are fossilised volcanic ashes.

Continue on the same path up to Chaux and behold its unique panorama. Descent to Alpe des Chaux and arrival on the Frience plateau, where you will be able to admire the Massif de l'Argentine, Les Diablerets, the Muveran mountain chain as well as Dents du Midi.
