Where the vast Obergoms region turns into a narrow gorge leading to the Untergoms, the Binn Valley opens up. It is popular with amateur geologists. It's not only the nearly intact Walser villages with their dark wooden houses, but also the spectacular backdrops between Grengiols and Fäld, as well as the rich vegetation and the natural mineral deposits (one of Europe's largest finds of this kind), that make this hike a superb experience of nature.
The mountain walk over Le Suchet links the high plateau of Ste-Croix with the Vallon de l'Orbe. This tour is part of the Jura Mountain Trail. Between the starting point in Ste-Croix and the destination in Vallorbe there is much of interest to discover. There are typical Jura landscapes and a whole range of spectacular vantage points right along the route.
The imposing Gantrisch mountain chain stretches eastwards from the Gurnigel region, ending with the mighty rocky dome of the Stockhorn. Right along this chain runs a mountain path offering magnificent views across the Bernese Alps and Lake Thun and down into the Simmental valley.
