165,000 hectares in size, the Upper Jura Regional Nature Park extends over three départements: the Jura, the Ain and the Doubs. The highest place of the park is the Crêt de la Neige peak at 1720 metres in the Ain département.
A series of stunning landscapes – mountains, rivers, waterfalls, mountain meadows, forests and villages – make this area a paradise for nature lovers and hiking fans.
In the Jura, the Flumen gorges between Saint-Claude and Septmoncel; the Chapeau de Gendarme, a natural curiosity made of limestone layers shaped like an old policeman's hat; the wonderful Lamoura lake and the Les Rousses ski resort, are among the places to be discovered.
During a stay in the Upper Jura massif, visitors can also see Jura cheeses like Comté and Morbier being made in the numerous cheese dairies located in this area.
