Confront the powdery snow-covered slopes to reach the summits or enter the calm of the forest: the pleasures of hiking or wandering the snowy scenery seduces the frequent visitors as well as day visitors.
The Vallée de Joux offers several itineraries of packed snowy trails along the Lac de Joux and around the Marchairuz and Mollendruz passes, but also near the valley’s villages and public transportation.
The variety of the trails provide a vast range of unique scenery from lakes which are often ice-covered, wide open Jura valleys or magnificent viewpoints of the plains and the mountain range of the Alps.
