The Regional Vaudois Jura Nature Park extends from the summit of La Dôle to the medieval monastic town of Romainmôtier. To the north, the Joux Valley (Vallée de Joux) is situated at 1000 meters. To the south, the park is spread over the forested slopes of the Jura up to the vineyards of Lake Geneva.
The Gorner Gorge is one of the most fascinating natural beauties of Zermatt. It lies around 20 walking minutes from the southern end of the village and is easily accessible.
