Yverdon-les-Bains Region’s positioning as “A Region of Energies” is reference to the restorative energy that tourists seek as part of their outdoor pursuits either in the Jura mountains or on the shores of lake Neuchâtel, be it during the summer or the winter. But that’s not all! Relaxation and rejuvenation is also to be found in the curative thermal spa waters in Yverdon-les-Bains at the Centre Revital in Les Rasses and at various other sites and museums. Further sites famous for their restorative energies are the rivers and water courses of the Orbe Gorges, at Covatannaz that supply the Vallorbe forges, the 45 menhirs or standing stones at Clendy, and the Peace Stone on Chasseron (1606m).
Yverdon-les-Bains Region comprises seven main tourist destinations: Grandson, Orbe, Romainmôtier, Sainte-Croix/Les Rasses, Vallorbe, Yverdon-les-Bains and Yvonand.
