Mountainbike Holidays Jura Bike Saignelégier - Nyon

Mountainbike: Jura Bike

The charming hills of Jura

The region Freiberge is known for horse breeding and numerous horses edge the trail until the route again leads along the Doubs to remote Lac de Moron und Lac des Brenets. The ride from Val de Travers to the «Balcon Vaudois» is a real treat.

Here the tour runs along the southernmost slopes of the Jura, with wonderful views of Lac de Neuchâtel with the Alps in the background. The last part of the ride leads into the Vallé de Joux, which with its lake rates as Switzerland’s coldest region.


The route leads over the lush green pastures of the Franches Montagnes to Mont Soleil with its numerous impressive wind-power plants and internationally-famous solar energy plant. Your destination is the watch city of La Chaux-de-Fonds..

Sehr abwechslungsreichen MTB Strecken durch wunderbar schöne Natur. Bei nassem Wetter eventuell alternative Routen benutzen. Wäre eine Empfehlung in den Reiseunterlagen darauf hinzuweisen.

Lieber A. Vielen Dank für Ihre positive Bewertung. Der Jura wird unter Mountainbiker oft etwas verkannt. Umso mehr freut uns Ihre Rückmeldung.
