Cycling Jura South Foot

The slow route

If you want to travel quickly from Olten to Geneva, travel through the midlands. If you have time, choose the route along the Jura South Foot. Beautiful old towns lie along the wide arc of the Jura through Switzerland, and castles and palaces watch over the wide countryside occasionally. From Olten you roll through the hilly foothills of the Jura onto the land of the Three Lakes with a view of the Aare.

Carrot fields, farmland and vineyards dominate the picture here, before the snow-covered peaks of the Mont Blanc massif come into view from Yverdon-les-Bains. The small villages along the way, not far from the big metropolis, seem to be from another time and inspire dreams. The clocks really do tick a bit slower along the Jura South Foot, but who cares if you're not in a hurry?

Tour character

Actually, an easy tour, but the foothills of the Jura do have occasional climbs. Some traffic around the cities of Biel, Neuchâtel and Geneva, but otherwise an extremely scenic route on little used roads.
