Jura Crest Trail - Solothurn - Couvet

The Jura Crest Trail is considered the classic among national long-distance trails. Signalization of the route, starting at Zurich and ending just before Genève, began as early as 1905. It links two major Swiss towns and as the name suggests, leads over the Swiss Jura heights. This makes a sweeping arc towards the northwest, so those hiking this trail go a little round the bend – and over the language boundary! 

Tour character: level 2

For the steep ascents a good condition is needed. The trails are easy to walk, but they may beslippery on wet days

  • Day 1

    Arrival to Solothurn | Solothurn – Biel

    Luggage drop-off in Solothurn. Short train ride to Oberdorf and by cable car up to Weissenstein, where you reach the Jura Crest Trail. From the roof of Canton Solothurn, with views across the Jura arc to the Mittelland and snow-capped Alps and on through forests and typical Jura meadows. The first third is also a Planetenweg (planet path). Language border at Montagne de Romont.

    Approx. 6.5 h approx. 24 km 700 m 1'415 m

  • Day 2

    Biel – Le Paquier

    From the low-lying Schüss-Valley to the crest of the Bernese Jura. An almost constant, yet comfortable climb to scale the Chasseral, already seen from afar. Sensational panoramic view with the Mittelland lakes: a feast for the eyes. From Chasseral transfer down to Les Bugnenets/ Le Paquier.

    Approx. 6 h approx. 17 km 1'340 m 270 m

  • Day 3

    Le Paquier – La Chaux-de-Fonds

    A varied hike between the upper St. Imier Valley and the Val de Ruz Valley with the winter-sports resort, Le Pâquier (hometown of ski-ace Didier Cuche). From the top of the pass Vue-des-Alpes by bus or taxi to La Chaux-de-Fonds.

    Approx. 6 h approx. 20 km 760 m 1'000 m

  • Day 4

    La Chaux-de-Fonds – Travers/Couvet

    By bus or taxi back to the Vue-des-Alpes pass. Enjoy the fantastic panoramic view from the high mountain chain with the Tête de Ran and Mont Racine peaks. The slabs of the rocky spur provide a breathtaking view down to Lac de Neuchâtel, before making the steep descent to Noiraigue.

    Approx. 6 h approx. 20 km 790 m 1'275 m

  • Day 5

    Circular hike Creux du Van | Departure or extension

    The perspiration at the start of this stage is well worth it: the highlight of the tour is the natural rock amphitheatre of Creux du Van, Swiss equivalent of the Grand Canyon. From the heights you can enjoy wonderful views on the sparkling waters of Lake Neuenburg. You continue down to Couvet after your hike.

    Approx. 5 h approx. 16 km 915 m 420 m
