Swimming, hiking, mountain biking, climbing, downhill skiing, cross-country skiing... It's as if the Jura Mountains were designed for every leisure activity imaginable! On the water or on dry land, across the snow or up in the air, push out the boundaries and make the most of the great outdoors!

Aquatic paradise

In and on the water

From leisurely swim to canyoning adventure, the possibilities are endless when it comes to having fun in the water! If you're not much of a sailor, take a trip on a riverboat and be charmed by the passing scenery. Alternatively, rent out a pleasure boat and become your own skipper for a few days! Or if you're more into rowing, you'll enjoy exploring by canoe!

Get a grip!

Potholing, climbing... adrenalin seekers, take note

In the Jura Mountains there are plenty of ways to defy the laws of gravity, like climbing up a rock face, moving through the treetops on an adventure trail, paraglading or hang-gliding through the air, whizzing down the slope on a summer luge, or testing your balance on a via-ferrata trail. And if you want to push the limits even further and really lose your bearings, then head for the caves for a potholing excursion!
