Spend a weekend discovering the magnificent scenery and sites of the Haut Jura with local UIMLA-certified mountain leader Lucas.


2 Days

All year


This hiking expedition to the Haut Jura is a great way to discover this beautiful area while enjoying a pleasant walk in the mountains.

These hiking weekends can be organized both during the summer and during the winter. Take into account, however, that snowshoes might be necessary for the colder months.

During the first day, we will climb up to the Dole summit. It is one of the area's most emblematic summits, from where you'll be able to enjoy the most stunning view. If the weather is good, you may even get to see the Mont Blanc! The Léman lake will be at your feet. During the winter, we will instead climb to the Noirmont summit, more suitable for snowshoeing and just as beautiful.

Finally, the second day is less "sporty". On this day, we will hike to get to two very interesting places in the Haut Jura. First, we'll walk to "l'Espace des mondes polaires", where you'll learn all about the Arctic. I regularly conduct expeditions there and am always happy to share my knowledge of the area. After that, we'll hike to the cheese maturing cellar of comté Juraflore, where you will also participate in a cheese tasting!

If you are visiting the area during the winter, you can also check out my 3-day Jura snowshoeing traverse and my 4-day snowshoeing guided tour. 

Contact me to start planning your trip to the amazing Haut Jura. You'll fall in love with this stunningly beautiful 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
