Jura's main charm is obviously Nature. What better way to discover it than these footpaths which cross it in the best known sites and in the remote corners? Experienced hikers, the GR® or GR de Pays® ten offer you weeks of hiking. Walkers and families, dozens of circular walks taking between 1 and 7 hours let you discover all Jura's facets at your own pace; making particular mention of those called "discovery paths", because they will teach you a bit more, through a booklet or signs arranged along the route, on the peregrine falcon, the abbey of Gigny/Suran, the policeman's hat or the ponds of Bresse.
Do not miss the Hérisson Waterfalls route, the Haut Jura tourist train, the Baumes-les-Messieurs and Moldon Caves, and the new House of Waterfalls. At the Hérisson Waterfalls many viewpoints will let you contemplate the magic of rushing water in every season - the La Frasnée valley and its waterfall. The house of waterfalls awaits you at the base of the spectacular fan-shaped Eventail waterfall. Our audiovisual and museographic area will immerse you in an amazing, playful world in the heart of a natural heritage area classified as remarkable: the Hérisson valley, its waterfalls, its history and legends.
Who does not know the pipe of Saint-Claude and the toys of Haut Jura? Here, craft regains its prestige. Jura is the region of the child and the toy: Jura created the wooden toy. A children's festival takes place every year at the beginning of July with over 50 workshops for 3 days at Moirans en Montagne, the toy capital. You will also have a choice between Fort des Rousses with its 25,000 cheeses, the museum of the pipe and the diamond and the spectacles museum in Morez, the cheese shops, the woodworkers, and the Royal Saltworks of Arc-et-Senans.
Jura is synonymous with gastronomy! A sampling of the wines and cheeses of Jura. The fondues, smoked meats, cheeses and yellow wine are all products typifying the know-how of Franche Comté, and can be eaten in many small restaurants and hotels nestling in the villages. Jura is a genuine area where the famous Comté and Morbier cheeses are made in the traditional way.
