A resort at the gateway to the Regional Nature Park

Nearby yet secret, just a stone's throw from the Alps, the Upper Bugey part of the Jura Mountains is easy to reach. The surprising summits and cliffs are mirrored in the clear waters of Nantua, Genin, Sylans and other lakes... as well as the River Ain, offering the ideal setting for sports activities and relaxing pursuits amid nature.

On the edge of the Upper Jura Regional Nature Park, the Haut-Bugey trail-running resort has itineraries to suit all enthusiasts in terms of distance and elevation range. Novices will enjoy the lakesides and riverbanks, while experienced trail-runners will tackle the vertical kilometre known as the "KMV".

The trail-running resort proposes a full range of services and facilities, including a dedicated website, a free smartphone trail app, a performance tracker, coaching sessions and training courses.

Wait no more, come and run in the footsteps of champion Xavier Thévenard! The Haut-Bugey trail-running resort is where he trains and trail no. 5, the lake balcony trail, was named after him. Take part in the race that he created to reflect his own preferences, the Ultra01 XT Expérience.
