More info about Water Sports in Jura Mountains:

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
