THE VIA SALINA TOURIST ROUTE

The Via Salina tourist route, running from Arc-et-Senans to Bern, via Ornans.
The Via Salina tourist route offers excellent possibilities for walking and cycling tours in the region referred to as the “arc jurassien”, located in the Franche-Comté region in France and the Cantons of Bern, Vaud, Neuchâtel and Jura in Switzerland. Nature and culture meet on this itinerary that runs from the Arc-et-Senans Royal Saltworks to Bern, passing by the saltworks of Salins-les-Bains, the birth-land of the painter Courbet in Ornans and the thermal centres of Yverdon-les-Bains. The historical salt routes of the Via Salina, offering a pleasant blend of well-being, history, remarkable landscapes and UNESCO sites, are suitable for walking at a leisurely pace as well as for more trained hikers.
