Close to the French border you will find a landscape of peace and solitude. Typical Jurassic forests accentuate the scenery. Magnificent panoramic views extend far into the Mittelland. The Savoy Alps and the Mont Blanc are so close you can almost touch them. And after the tour you will descend into the Jurassic Mountains' underworl: The grottos of Vallorbe are well worth a visit.
