Self-guided Jura 8-day Cycling Tour 

The hilly ridges of the Jura stretch from Basel to Lake Geneva – the mysterious landscapes off the beaten track that fascinate every traveller. Anyone who thinks of the Jura dreams of fir forests, remote plateaus, grazing horses and spectacular viewpoints. 

The Jura also includes the granary of Ajoie, the Doubs valley with the jewel of St. Ursanne, La Chaux-de-Fonds with its chessboard street pattern, the bustling Val de Travers, the caves of Vallorbe, the enchanting Lac de Joux, the world of luxury watchmakers and the magnificent wine-growing regions along Lake Geneva.

Tour Character: Level 3

The Jura-Route with its diverse topographyis aimed at athletic bikers. It has an almost «exotic» character and leads through little known landscapes in the scarcely populated border country of France. Longers and steeper slopes can usually be shortened by train or cable cars where you can transport your bike as well. 

Furthermore, the tour leads over lonely plateaus, some with spectacular views of the Swiss middle land and the high Alps (Freiberge, Balcon du Jura vaudois, Vallée de Joux, Parc naturel régional Jura Vaudois). The tour is almost entirely done on asphalt streets and is therefore perfect for racing bikes. For those who like it a little more leisurely, we recommend an electric bike.
