Looking for a weekend getaway for two?

There is much to see in just 48 hrs in the Jura & Three-Lakes region.
Pick up an e-bike at St-Ursanne and discover the typical landscapes of the Jura and the Doubs National Park along the "Route Verte", see the semi-wild Franches-Montagnes horses, ride through picturesque villages and stop for a picnic at the Etang de la Gruère natural lake. Those with a little more time have the opportunity to hike part of the Jura Crest Trail, stop for a bite to eat at a typical métairie (farm restaurant) and finally enjoy the wide range of cultural attractions in the charming, bilingual town of Biel/Bienne.

Start the day in St-Ursanne.

On the banks of the Doubs, the small medieval town of Saint-Ursanne conceals many treasures.

Ride from St-Ursanne towards Mont-Soleil. On this leg of the tour, you will discover the typical landscapes of the Jura and the Doubs Nature Park.

Observe the semi-wild horses or visit one of the many horse stud farms.

Make a small detour to the natural lake Etang de la Gruère and enjoy the beauty of nature during a lakeside picnic.

The e-bike tour ends on Mont-Soleil in the Chasseral Regional Park. Round off the day with a glass of white wine on the terrace!

Start the day in the watchmaking town of St. Imier.

A bus will take you to the Chasseral, where you can enjoy a panoramic view of the Alps, the Three-Lakes region, Mont-Soleil and Mont-Crosin.

From the Chasseral you walk 17 km along the Jura Crest Trail across endless pasture landscapes towards Frinvillier.
