Vallorbe is a town at the foot of the Jura Mountains, along the banks of the River Orbe, near the border with France. Within the district of Jura-Nord Vaudois, it is part of the Swiss Canton of Vaud. With its rich cultural heritage and breathtaking landscapes, this spot is the perfect destination to visit year round.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
