For nature lovers, families or groups of friends: exploring the countryside of the Jura and its culinary pleasures.
The walk is done in two stages (in 2019), starting from Sainte-Croix (Col des Etroits). It begins with a pretty walk through the forest in the direction of Les Praises, then the Saut-de-l’Eau. At the first gourmet stop at the Chalet de la Mayaz the walker can sample a plate of regional products as an aperitif. (1st. stage: 1 hr 15 mins.)
The second stage brings you to another typical tenant farm, the Chalet du Sollier, which is reached by taking a path across the pastures. Here, surrounded by farm animals, you can sample the speciality of the place, the famous "fondue surprise", served in a loaf of bread. (2nd. stage: 20 mins.). Exceptionnaly in 2019, the dessert, a cream cake, is also served at the Chalet du Sollier.
The walk continues in the direction of the chalet La Casba and the Avattes (about 30 minutes). The return on the path called the Chemin aux Vaches takes about 45 mins.
The itinerary used during the gourmet walk is reserved for people in good physical condition. The cumulative altitude difference of this hike is +380m, including +225m between Col des Etroits and Le Sollier.
