Winter hiking in Val-de-Travers

Various routes to get away from it all

On a winter or snowshoe hike in the Val-de-Travers, you can leave everyday life behind and set off through the quiet, snow-covered landscape of the Neuchâtel Jura.

In the Val-de-Travers you have various marked routes with different levels of difficulty – hiking heaven, leading you through forests and across meadows to breathtaking viewpoints.
