Vallée de Joux, the great outdoors and traditional watch-making

Nature and tradition come together in the Vallée de Joux where the villages around Lake Brenet and Lake Joux are full of the treasures of time.

The unspoilt landscapes of Vallée de Joux offer silence and space to sports enthusiasts; in winter, they can enjoy over 220 km of cross-country skiing trails and a variety of downhill runs, while in summer, they can follow footpaths along the lakeshore and through villages, the Jura regional park, one of the biggest natural parks in Switzerland, and the Risoud forest. A natural skating rink in winter, Lake Joux also attracts summer holiday-makers for windsurfing, swimming or sailing.

The Vallée de Joux is the birthplace of fine Swiss watch-making and the location of some internationally renowned watch factories. Visitors can learn all about the history of time and fine watch-making at the Espace Horloger in Le Sentier.

Favoured by foodies, this region is mostly known for the famous Vacherin Mont-d’Or AOP. This soft cheese, matured for a minimum of 21 days, is recognisable by its signature spruce box.
