Saint-Cergue is located at 1041 m, to the east of the impressive Jura peak of La Dôle. Its situation, high above Lake Geneva, offers wonderful views of the whole alpine chain as far as Mont Blanc. The main attractions of this resort are the peaceful landscape of the Jura and the fresh, scented air of the extensive forests.
The broad upland valley of the Col de la Givrine is a popular cross-country skiing area with 80 km of tracks. Some ski-lifts take alpine skiers up to the skiing area. Though small, with 20 km of slopes, it is the largest area for night-time skiing in western Switzerland. Winter hikers and snow-shoe walkers will find footpaths and trails in this extensive area.
