A spectacular geological curiosity, the rocky cirque of Creux-du-Van is nicknamed the Swiss “Grand Canyon”. It erects its circular cliffs, almost 200 meters high and 1400 meters long, above the wild Gorges de l’Areuse. It is located at the end of the mythical and mysterious valley of Val-de-Travers, historical cradle of absinthe, straddling the Vaudois and Neuchâtel borders, in the Jura Arc, in French-speaking Switzerland.
