The high valleys of the Jura mountains, between Lajoux and La Pesse, in France, are ideal for snowshoeing since the slopes are quite gentle.
The network of cottages is also a great advantage in this region. It allows us to follow nice itineraries enjoying the softness and roundness of the curves…
The environment and the landscapes are truly exceptional. This trip is completely adapted for a first approach to winter trail. Indeed, it’s the perfect trip for snow-lover beginners.

We meet at the Vie Neuve cottage and organise our equipment. Then we start walking to some of my favourite places, from where the views are incredible. During this day we cross Bellecombe, an emblematic High Jura valley. The highlight here is the softness and harmony of the landscapes.

Today is a panoramic day because we walk on a magnificent ridge line. I chose it due to its wild and aesthetic nature. We have lunch at the Borne au Lion. Then, depending on the level of the group, if you want we may go to the conquest of the Crêt de Chalam, historic and charismatic!

Another beautiful path through the meadows until La Pesse and La Combe aux Bisons, which we visit and where we have lunch. Before that, we will have climbed the Crêt de Nerbier that offers breathtaking views. After lunch, we take a new path to reach our accommodation.

This is the last day of our adventure through the soft landscapes of the High Jura. The discovery is constant since we keep going off the beaten tracks! We will pass near the Moussières cheese dairy.
