2-day hiking program in the Jura

Jura

Discover this lesser-known French region with this 2-day hiking program in the Jura led by UIMLA-certified mountain leader Lucas.

Not specified

Jura

2 Days

All year


Description

Jura meant "wooded areas" in Gaulish and you'll very quickly understand why! Discover the region's highlights during this 2-day hiking program in this off-the-beaten-track area in eastern France.

The Jura stretches for about 250 kilometers along the Franco-Swiss border. From Lake Geneva to Belfort, its dark wooded hills and rolling dairy country are a favorite among those seeking some tranquility and the simple pleasures of mountain life.

During these 2 days we will progress on both sides of Mt. Salaa and Noirmont. We will wander among spruce trees and pass through the region's characteristic farms. All while enjoying incredible views of the Alps and the Val d'Orbe.

This program is open to hikers of all levels, including young children. However, take into account that we'll be walking for 5 hours on the first day and 6 hours on the second. So make sure everybody in your group is able to handle this!

If you'd like to check a similar program I offer in this region, take a look at my discovery weekend in the Haut Jura. It's another great option!

Join me on this 2-day hiking program and discover this beautiful but lesser known French region. Contact me and we'll start planning this amazing mountain getaway!

About the guide

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.

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
