Why not you let yourself be carried away by the call of the far north? Thanks to the Jura’s Nordic area you will find true escapism and wake up your inner trapper…

Where the Northern adventure begins

With their gentle slopes and snow-covered valleys, the Jura Mountains naturally lend themselves to a wide range of Nordic activities: criss-cross the Nordic ski slopes in the Hautes Combes; let yourself be carried along by sled dogs in the Combe des Cives; go snowshoeing on the Plateau du Retord; explore the ‘Backcountry’ or even meet the ski jumping champions on the Chaux Neuve ski jump…

Everyone can explore the region in their own way – this is a smile-inducing mountain experience that gives you access to wild and remote places.

Land of champions

The Jura Mountains have seen the birth, formative years and training of some great champions: Anaïs Bescond, Vincent Desfrasne, Florence Baverel, Simon Desthieux or Jason Lamy Chappuis…

Each year the ski jumps on the leafy Chaux-Neuve host a round of the Nordic Combined World Cup and France’s most famous long-distance Nordic ski race: the Transjurassienne also takes place in the Jura Mountains.

Laughter and games in skiing areas

Each Nordic domaine has its own play area and what is certain is that there is something for everyone! Located at the beginning of the slopes, these well-equipped and secure areas allow you to exercise while having fun: Slaloms, jumps, bumps or tunnels. Some areas even offer snowtubing trails, laser biathlon or sports trails! Laughter and friendliness await in these spaces reserved for learning how to slide along the snow…

To see, to do…

The region’s typical villages are nestled in areas of preservation: wild plains, peat bogs, waterfalls, snow-covered valleys… Restaurants and small local shops also contribute to your serene holiday.

Come and discover the local gastronomy and know-how of the Montagnons with a visit to a museum or a manufacturing workshop. And if you head a little further afield, away from the roads, and cross to the other side of the mountain, you might see the deer, boreal lynx or capercaillie that inhabit the snow-covered forests…
