Fir trees, up to 500 years old, flowers, butterflies, gentian and woodchucks (marmots): the valley of Avançon is home to a varied flora and fauna. It is highly likely that you will spot chamois and ibex .
Mt.Wetterhorn rises majestically and is easily recognizably just above the Grosse Scheidegg. It is just because it is so close to the famous mountain triumvirate Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau that it is less known, but injustly so. The Grosse Scheidegg is the shortest connection between Grindelwald and Meiringen and is in itself a point of departure for many great hikes.
As with all walks on the Jura Mountain Trail, there is no shortage of spectacular vantage points on the route from Brugg to the Staffelegg pass. To the north, there are wide vistas of the hilly area of the Aargau and the Jura in the Basle region. And the Black Forest in the background.
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.
