Creux du Van, Neuchatel

(4.9/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
At Creux du Van, hike around an amphitheatre-shaped natural rock formation situated within a large nature reserve. Created by natural water erosion from a glacier millions of years ago, the semi-circular formation is 1,400 m (4,593 ft) wide and 150 m (492 ft) deep. Keep your eyes open for wildlife, such as lynx and ibex. The formation offers views from above and can be accessed by car or foot. Stop by one of the farms with animals or one of the small restaurants on your way up. Be careful, as the area is not fenced, and the drop is steep.

  • I went to play the horns of the Alps to the hollow of the Van. Great reactions of Ibex approaching when the notes are in the bass. Wonderful and impressive place.

  • View breathtaking, you can even see ibex! Very nice ballad. Possibility to settle for a snack. There are also some terns. Beautiful!

  • The Grand Canyon, Switzerland! To see absolutely. In the morning, afternoon or even late in the day it is a beautiful place but which can be crowded some days. The lucky ones will be able to admire Ibex also.
