Hiking around Gorges de L’Abime, Saint Claude

Gorges de l'Abime 2
gorges de l'abime

Lucas, UIMLA mountain leader, will take you on a half-day hike to gorges and cascades around Saint Claude, like Gorges de l'Abime and Cascade des Combes


1/2 Day

Mar - May, Sep, Oct


I invite you to share a beautiful half day exploring the gorges and cascades around Saint Claude. There are many locations to visit, for example gorges de l’Abime and cascade des Combes. But we can also go to the gorges du Flumen and the cascade Queue de Cheval.

These natural sites are veritable gems. Indeed, they make visitors very happy when they come to the area.

The streams with sometimes impressive flow have always been a first-class asset here. In fact, the hydraulic energy which they provide contribute a lot to the development of the many small industries in the massif.

During the spring and fall the waters are most abundant. Therefore they are the best moments to appreciate the tour.

Please note that you will need a car. During this hike we will cover 7km maximum, and 230m of positive altitude change.

Did you find this short hiking trip interesting? Then please contact me for more information! And if you have some more time in the area, I can take you on a guided hike in Saint Claude, to learn about the history of the area.

Mountain Leader

I discovered the joy of the mountains at a very young age, and I knew that my place was there, in the Jura, the Alps, or elsewhere, but in a place where raised terrain allows to go high...
My experience in the Mountain Troops and the Gendarmerie, together with a regular practice of different mountain sports, allowed me to gain knowledge and know-how that enriched my mountain leader training.
In 2012 I got certified as State Mountain Leader (AEM), which allowed me to start fully living my passion for the mountain, and sharing it with you.
I propose to share very varied activities: walking ,hiking, trekking, snowshoeing. It allows me to enjoy precious moments in nature with you.
To complement my leader training, I discovered trail running 8 years ago, a more sportif and intense way to discover the mountain, always respecting the environment.
I can also offer you my expertise in Morocco, where I have been going often during these last years. My knowledge of the field and of the local correspondants allows me to propose magnificent journeys to you!
From the Jura to the Alps, not forgetting Pyrenees, Corsica and Morocco, my approach to the mountain has always been guided by the search of pleasure and the comprehension of the environment.

What people are saying about Lucas


We had a excellent time in the Jura mountains together with Lucas. Beautiful nature and an perfect guide! I can really recommend this!



Home again after three amazing days in the Jura mountains I just want to come back for more adventures! We were a group of five people so we got the pleasure of planning our own trip. Lucas had an idea to start with and then we made some modifications in order to fit our level of running. Lucas was the perfect guide and host and very eager to share with us his passion for the Jura Terrain and its flora and fauna. He is a very strong runner and great fun to hang out with. We had a lot to talk about and he was definitely one in the group! I can only give my very best recommendations!!!



I had a wonderful adventure with Lucas in the Jura mountains. I'm a trail running beginner and he made me dreaming for more! He had planed well and had back up plans if needed...He new his area well and took us to great places. We visited high spots with great views and different country sides that was beautiful. Evert day was different. I'm  so happy to become acquainted with Lucas :)  



We had a very good time during our snowshoe trip with Lucas! The Jura region is very beautiful and peaceful (perfect to explore with snowshoes) and Lucas was a great guide that helped us in everything we needed, shared all his knowledge and passion about the place, showing us a lot of spots (some hidden and less travelled) to enjoy great views and also teaching us a lot of interesting facts about nature, the history and the culture of the places we visited. On top of that he made us feel as if we were walking with a friend and not just a guide which made the experience even better. So, on short, we strongly recommend to everyone this activity, the region and Lucas as guide for a great few days in the nature away from all. Best regards, Luis Manso
