Cycling: Roundtrip nature park Jura Vaudois

Just like in a fairy tale

From which fairy tale did Nyon Castle emerge? How enchanted it stands on the shores of Lake Geneva and marks the beginning of your story about your bike tour through the Jura Vaudois nature park. You leave the lake behind you for the time being and make your way up the steep flanks to the hills of the Jura. Here the small villages of Bassins, Bière and L'Isle tell their own story and are waiting to be discovered by you. The detour to the medieval old town of Romainmôtier, with its abbey, ends almost pompously; afterwards, you will open a new chapter with a ride through the quiet Vallée de Joux. The ascent to the Col du Marchairuz will probably be the hardest part of your journey. The view of the Mont Blanc and the descent to the vineyards around Nyon will be an exhilarating finale shortly thereafter!   


Luggage drop-off in Nyon. At the beginning, the route is slightly uphill until you reach the villages of the Jura-Südfuss and the Jura Vaudois nature park. On the way, pay a brief visit to the La Garenne animal park or the huge lime tree of Marchissy before today's stage takes you to the small stage town of Montricher.

One small village after the other awaits you today before you reach the charming village of Romainmotier after a short descent. Take some time to visit the church with its well preserved abbey before you roll into the peaceful Vallée de Joux. You will spend the night in the small village of Le Pont on the shores of the lake.

Along the lakeside and through the valley of the watchmaking industry at the Lac de Joux. Treat yourself to a short break in Le Sentier before heading up to the coldest valley in Switzerland, the Combe des Amburnex. After this cool detour, the historic pass road up to the Col du Marchairuz will cost you a drop of sweat or two. Afterwards, the view of Lake Geneva and the nearby Alps will compensate for all your efforts. A thrilling descent to Nyon completes your journey. Individual departure after arrival in Nyon.
