Parc Jura vaudois - This stage starts in the Val-de-Travers, famous for its absinth, known throughout the world. Visit a distillery and taste this elixir in the many varieties that made a name for itself.

This next-to-last stage starts from Val-de-Travers, whose famous absinth is exported to trendy New York bars. While you're there, visit a distillery and taste the different versions of this elixir that was prohibited for many years, and hear some delightful tales of how this ban was avoided. From there, proceed south through the Aiguillon mountain pass that overlooks the wild gorges of the Orbe river and the spectacular Saut du Day. From the Mont d'Orzeires pass, you arrive in the Jura vaudois Nature Park and go alongside the Joux Lake from the village of Le Pont to Le Sentier.
