/ The Jura
i) Day walks
iii) Other cool stuff to do/see
iv) Any books featuring the above.
Thanks in advance for your help.
On a more sightseeing theme, the saltworks at Salin are worth a visit
The guide book I've used for visits is Michel Blant's "Le Jura - Les paysages, la vie sauvage, les terroirs" but its a guide to the natural history rather than a walking guide.
- les Cascades du Hérisson - a series of waterfalls in a gorge which can be accessed from above, below or near its mid point.
- Baume les Messieurs - former monastery in limestone cirque
Also good cheese & wine to taste (& visit vineyards & 'fruitières if that interests you).
I too remember visiting a salt mine in the area when staying in the jura and it was pretty darned cool!
The rest was a conservation holiday so I was ‘working’ for the national park rangers.
Hi Just come back from the Jura area we camped at Labergement-Sainte-Marie www.camping-lac-remoray.com
It is a basic nice campsite by the lake with plenty to do in the area. The area is quite high at 1000m so presume summer is quite short but a stunning area
Some nice walks in the Mont d'O area with views onto Mont Blanc and Swiss Alps
We went to the les Cascades du Hérisson which was like a series of dry stone steps due to a dry summer
Hope you have a good time
I can highly recommend the camping near (just north) of Longchaumois. Quiet, nice spot. Good walking. High so cooler.
