Chemin de la Dent de Vaulion

Hike leading you from Le Pont to the peak of Dent de Vaulion. Return via Pétra Félix.
Starting from the shore of Lake Joux, you will ascend fast towards La Petite Dent, the restaurant and finally the peak of Dent de Vaulion, at 1,483 m. A marvellous vantage point offering a 360° panorama of Joux Valley, neighbouring France, western Switzerland and the Alps.

After a well-deserved fondue at Chalet de la Dent de Vaulion, you will embark on your downhill walk towards Pétra Félix. After crossing a large forest, you will reach the lakeshore and the Le Pont village.
