After enjoying Yverdon-les-Bains, a town steeped in history, the Grand Tour gains altitude to reach Sainte-Croix.

But first be prepared to be surprised by a visit to the charming historic centre of Yverdon-les-Bains and relax a little in the town's thermal spa. Then get back on the road! The Grand Tour continues through the charms of the Vaud countryside as far as Vuiteboeuf, and then takes you along its winding contours. An area that is worth a visit! On the way up, you can enjoy the view from the famous "Balcon du Jura vaudois" which offers a magnificent panorama of the Alps and the surrounding vineyards. This stage comes to an end in the pretty, sun-drenched village of Sainte-Croix.
