Fancy a family adventure in the great outdoors? Need to get yourself and the children away from those screens? Then it's high time you booked a weekend or more in the Jura Mountains, to recharge your batteries with a whole programme: spring walks near lakes and waterfalls, encounters with some amazing animals or, for the adventurous, canoeing, treetop trails, zipwire or summer luge rides. Enough to keep the whole family happy and get everyone outside to enjoy those gorgeous spring days.

Spring walks at the water's edge

What's your favourite spectacle? The soothing sight of a lake, or the power of a surging waterfall? In the Jura Mountains, you can enjoy both without even putting in too much effort! These revitalising walks are also suitable for families with young children!
