Autumn is the season when the Jura Mountains look a lot like Canada. Flame-coloured forests, natural lakes with tranquil waters, and scenery oozing serenity without the summer crowds... Bliss! "Les Droners" are a blogging duo who came to explore this "little French Canada" on a 5-day road trip. Their programme included a boat trip, a visit to the Hérisson and Saut du Doubs waterfalls, and encounters with some amazing people and professions. Read more to find out how they got on!

Little Canada, France

The Jura Mountains are often likened to Canada, and autumn is when the comparison is most striking. Surrounded by an incredible range of colours and all the generosity and authenticity of nature, in this season you inevitably think of the distant Canadian landscape. 

And if you dream of spending a night at the lakeside and taking a boat trip at the first light of dawn, your dream can become reality at La Ferme Marguerite which you'll find on the banks of a lake, Lac de l’Abbaye, 900 metres above sea level.

Fan of the great outdoors? The nationally-recognised Grand Site of the Saut du Doubs waterfall with its stunning canyons and 27-metre waterfall should fill you with wonder.

You'll love the sense of togetherness that reigns here! The local residents are very warm and friendly and will be delighted to chat with you and offer a few tips. Take the time to discover occupations that are practically unheard of elsewhere, such as that of the "sanglier" (cheese-box maker). You won't be disappointed!

Did you know?

In the Jura Mountains, a "sanglier" is not a wild boar!

"Sanglier" is French for "wild boar", but it is also the name of the craft of making sprucewood rings ("sangles") that encircle the region's typical runny cheeses such as the famous Mont d'Or! The Droners explain it all in their video.
