Les Tourbières Path

"In the soft autumn light, we follow the trail leading us through the history of peat farming in Ponts-de-Martel. Around us, silver birch and heather land give the landscape a Nordic feel. The moss covering the ground is like a real sponge we don’t want to crush... so we stay on the path! Guided by explanatory boards, we learn the importance of this special earth that heated many Jura households before the days of heating oil. We would never have believed that this natural paradise was a form of industrial wasteland."
