Electric bike tour to the Creux du Van

On the trail of absinthe – the “green fairy”

The tour starts at the historical railway station in Noraigue. Now you get to experience the sunny side of cycling: sit on the bike, step on the pedals, and off you go for a short ride along the River Areuse through the Val de Travers. The ascent to the natural rock cirque of the Creux du Van is easy pedalling thanks to the boost from the bike’s electric motor – an easy way to enjoy the varied landscapes of Neuchâtel's Jura mountains. You can finish your day with either an absinthe or chocolate tasting session at Noiraigue station.
