Cycling: La Route Verte

The nature parks of the Jura Arc

The "Heights & Horizons" Leisure Route takes you from Balsthal to Couvet for a real energy boost that will blow your mind! The Passwang Pass and the Vogelbergfluh in the Thal Nature Park offer a breath-taking panorama over Basel, to the North, and the Alps in the South. 

The two passes on the next stage reward you as well with magnificent views. You will then reach the charming medieval town of St-Ursanne, the gateway to the Doubs Nature Park, with its meandering Doubs river. Take the time to visit a franches-montagnes horse breeding farm before passing through the Chasseral Nature Park on the crest of Mont-Soleil.

You will then travel between dry stone walls, testimony to a long regional tradition, and wind turbines, creating the energy of the future. This Leisure Route ends with a small glass of “green fairy” in the beautiful Val-de-Travers.

Tour characteristic

A challenging tour along the chain of hills of the Jura. The tours lead mostly on little used side roads. Only in the urban centres is a little more traffic to be expected. Because of the sometimes challenging climbs, we recommend that you tackle the tour with an electric bike. The "pleasure variants" offer shorter stages and are less strenuous than the original route. The Route Verte mostly follows the signposted routes of Veloland Schweiz. In the cantons of Jura, Neuchâtel and Vaud, orientation is easy; before that, the different routes change several times a day.
