Hike from Les Rochats up to the Chasseron. On foot: Beyond Lake Neuchâtel and, further south, Lake Geneva, more than 250 kilometres of high mountain peaks emerge on the horizon. After passing through vast expanses of grazing land, you reach the home of music boxes and music automatons.


The long trail passes through forests and rolling meadows, eventually reaching the ascent to the Chasseron. Another glorious view awaits, as is so often the case in the Jura. There is also a hotel and restaurant with views of Lake Neuchâtel. After a descent of 1.5 hours, you reach St-Croix, the destination for this stage.
