Creux-du-Van is one of the best spot in the Jura mountains. You can walk aside a 100m deep canyon. If you go in the morning, you may see some of the many ibex living in the rocks.

HI, If the weather permits: Try to visit "Creux du Van" : a startling rocky mountain. It's most practical to have a (rental) car to get there. There's a train going to Travers, but from there it's still a long hike. Maybe... More
