The Alps are home to some of the most spectacular canyoning spots in France. The best regions range from extreme and hardcore adventures to smooth and enjoyable for the whole family. Jump into fresh-water pools, abseil through beautiful waterfalls, slide on smooth rock.

What's the weather like?
The mountain region is characterised by a maritime and continental feel, with cool temperatures high up in the mountains and milder weather lower down in the valleys
Located just north of the Western Alps, the sub-alpine Jura Mountains are a range that mostly parallels the border between France and Switzerland. Separating the great rivers of the Rhine and Rhone, the name Jura means forest, as the rolling mountains are carpeted in thick lush forest. The range reaches its highest peak at Le Cret de la Neige, which is settled in the French department of Ain. The area is also protected within the Jura Mountains Regional Natural Park
