Follow quiet, winding roads to the magnificent limestone hills along the border of France and Switzerland. Discover spectacular gorges where the forests have deer, boar and lynx, perfect for nature lovers. Grottos abound along with exciting caves that have enormous pot holes, stalagmites and stalactites that glisten underground. There are also wonderful fishing opportunities and exciting canoeing on many of the lakes, especially in the neighbouring department of Doubs. River boat tours are organised too which take visitors to huge waterfalls. If it's the great outdoors you like, cycling is very popular in Jura. From Jura holiday cottages you can explore the area by bicycle. There are many local bike hire companies that are able to suggest interesting cycling routes, great fun!
