Blue! Indisputably, this is the dominant colour of your trip along the Lakes Road. From Marigny to Thoirett, it winds with the contours of the Jura mountains to reveal all their aquatic beauty. 150km of roads and an array of blue tones subtly varying between deep blue and exotic turquoise as you discover the full diversity of the lakes of Jura. Add to that a number of iconic touristic attractions - a museum, a waterfall or a Comté cheese dairy - and you're en route for a glimpse of the very best that Jura has to offer!
A 150km scenic road
The 150km "Lakes Road" is a signposted driving itinerary that covers all the region's main attractions (museums, exhibitions, arts & crafts, local gastronomy, steephead valleys, panoramic viewpoints, natural sites and other curiosities). Above all, it offers an original route that allows drivers to discover the main lakes of the massif.
Throughout your trip, keep your eyes peeled and don't hesitate to stop for a few minutes to admire the exceptional sights that unfurl before you.
A multitude of lakes to discover
On this scenic itinerary you'll discover 18 different lakes and no two are the same! Some, like Vouglans, are manmade, others are natural, like Bonlieu and there are also lakes with facilities, such as Clairvaux. Follow the signs and let the magnetic aura of these little gems transport you!
