Jura Route Day 3: Lac de Joux -> Couvet

You will start the day with a 250 meter descent into Vallorbe. This little town, with its plentiful supplies of iron-ore and trees, has been an industrial village since at least 1285 when its first smelter was made !

The region is beautiful, but few Swiss living on the shores of Lake Geneva ever make it this far. They will know the name “Vallorbe”, but the next villages: Ballaigues, Lignerolle and Baulmes are virtually unknown outside this small valley.

Things get serious at kilometer 25 when we begin climbing the Col d’Aiguillon , (you will gain 650 meters in just five kilometers). But then it’s all downhill from here.

If you do not mind doing 7 or 8 extra kilometers, you are free to go off the path to Saint-Croix, where an out-of-work watchmaker invented the first music box in 1796.

Or continue following the bikes paths through the pastures to our overnight village of Couvet. Sample a glass of the local specialty: Absinthe. This strong, local, plant-based liqueur was banned in the early 20th century after it was thought to bring about madness. However, it was made legal again in 2005, so take your chances !
