Jura vaudois regional nature park

An oasis of nature and sustainability extending over the regions of Nyon, Morges, Vallée de Joux and the north of the Canton de Vaud.

Recognised as a regional nature park by the Confederation in 2013, the Jura vaudois regional nature park was created on the initiative of its inhabitants. It is distinguished by its extraordinary landscapes and rich natural and cultural heritage. The Jura vaudois regional nature park promotes the local economy, sustainable tourism, respect for the environment and the quality of life of its inhabitants.
The Jura vaudois Regional Nature Park is made up of nearly 40,000 inhabitants and 34 communes united by a common desire to cover an area of 568 km2.

Thanks to a 523-kilometre network of footpaths, it is possible to admire beautiful wooded pastures, chalets and dry-stone walls, while enjoying a breathtaking view of Lake Geneva and the Alps. In winter, cycling and hiking give way to cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.

The Park has selected hiking routes of varying length and difficulty, all of which are connected to public transport. Along the way, the Park's must-see places and good addresses for tasty local products are highlighted.
The thematic trails are punctuated with informative panels or illustrated with explanatory booklets. An ideal way to discover the regional heritage!

Some of the trails are taken from the "Sentiers de découverte NatuRando" binder, which contains 34 themed walks.

Discover the local specialities labelled by the Park!
The label (green square) guarantees that most of the production process takes place in the park, in compliance with sustainable development and the criteria of the Terre vaudoise brand. Producers who have signed a partnership agreement participate in a programme to strengthen biodiversity.

Finally, the charming villages of the Parc Jura vaudois also benefit from infrastructures offering a well-deserved rest before setting off on new discoveries.

Discover typical places, local cuisine and sometimes the world of cheese making in one of the many alpine pastures. In these typical places, you will find cheese specialities, regional products and local dishes that will delight you.
The owners, who are always ready to tell you about their history and the secrets of their cuisine, will fascinate you both intellectually and in terms of taste.
