Welcome to Parc Naturel Régional du Haut-Jura
Sprawled along the France-Switzerland border, just west of Lac Léman (Lake Geneva), the 1780-sq-km Haut-Jura Regional Park entices hikers and skiers to its pine-furred wilds. Dozens of villages, in the départements of Ain, Doubs and Jura, are dotted around the park. Les Rousses is best for winter sports (especially cross-country skiers), while Lajoux and Mijoux are good starting points for walking and mountain-biking.
Activity in Parc Naturel Régional du Haut-Jura hinges on summer rambles and winter sports; expect whisper-quiet villages during the shoulder seasons.
