Between castles and heritage houses, the route allows you to admire some architectural gems, which have made the history of the region. The views of Lake Neuchâtel and the Alps follow one another, at the foot of the Jura, from typical villages to small medieval villages.
After a start of course flat in the plain of Orbe, the climb is done gradually, in the heart of the soil, to join Vallorbe, renowned for its spectacular caves. The road then runs along the foot of the Jura to descend gently on Yverdon-les-Bains.
This route runs alongside the lake, and in particular the Grande Cariçaie Nature Reserve, right on the cobblestones of the charming medieval village of Estavayer le Lac. This first part, almost seaside, gives way then to a more rural landscape, in the hinterland, between the cantons of Vaud and Friborg, with against a backdrop the majestic Alps.
