The Jura: the Different Face of the Mountains

Along the French-Swiss border, the Jura mountains offer visitors a relaxing break with the discovery of nature’s secrets via a number of activities.

With majestic and varied landscapes, the quiet of the mountain here takes on its true sense. Preserved, almost always wild, rich with an exceptional flora and wildlife, the Jura offers an ideal destination to admire and contemplate nature in all its forms; offering sensations of freedom of movement for the clientele accustomed to an urbanised environment.

In winter, snow covered slopes and plateaus here create one of the largest Nordic areas of Europe, composed of wide open spaces, of ski stations (Métabief, Les Rousses, Mont-Jura) and village resorts.

Travelling solo, duo or as a tribe, one can skate, snowshoe, try ski jumping or a biathlon for the more energetic, or meet with the sled dogs, to live a unique experience.
