Snowshoeing in the heart of the Swiss Jura

Snowshoeing in the heart of the Swiss Jura

The Jura is a massif with gentle contours and medium altitudes, making it the perfect playground for snowshoe trekking and Nordic activities. It's a wooded environment with many open meadows that bear witness to the pastoral activity that reigned here in the past. The holiday is organised around a comfortable hotel in the heart of the Jura between the Vallée de Joux and Lake Geneva. On the first day, we'll explore the Combe des Amburnex. On the second day, we'll head for Mont Tendre, the highest peak in the Swiss Jura. All this with a panoramic view of the Alps in the background, from the Bernese Oberland to the Valais Alps and Mont Blanc.

Snowshoeing in the heart of the Swiss Jura

Snowshoeing in the heart of the Swiss Jura

Highlights of the trip

  • The wild landscapes of the Swiss Jura.
  • Comfortable mountain accommodation.
  • Sublime views of the Alps and Lake Geneva.

Day 1: La combe des Amburnex

D+ 380m D- 380m Dist 14km 4h30 walk

On the first day, we set off to explore the Combe des Amburnex. We'll be doing a loop through the high valleys of the Jura, which keep the snow and cold in winter. We're on high mountain pastures, so the environment is forested but also open to pastureland dotted with old farms. As we climb higher, we can make out the Alps in the distance.

Accommodation: Hotel. Meals: Lunch & dinner.

Day 2: The crests of Mont tendre

D+ 450m D- 450m Dist 15km 5h walk

On the second day, we'll follow the ridge path towards Mont Tendre, the highest peak in the Swiss Jura at 1679m. It offers exceptional views of the entire Alpine arc. There are several options for the return journey, depending on snow conditions.

Level required for this outing: Intermediate (See the article on snowshoe levels for self-assessment)
