On the road

Jura is full of surprises! Characterised by mountains and valleys, the region is naturally home to impressive scenery but also culture and traditions brought to life through local industries and attractions. From the town of Poligny, you can venture out to explore every side of this area.   History buffs can visit World Heritage sites, like the salt mines in Salins-les-bains, or explore the home of famous French scientist Louis Pasteur, in Dole. Moirans-en-Montagne is France's toy capital where you'll find a museum dedicated to the wooden toys created here for centuries.  
For gourmands, there is Michelin-starred restaurants and delicious local produce to be sampled. Cheese including the Comté variety is made in the region's dairy farms which you can tour, before tasting the goods in nearby eateries. And to drink? Lesser-known yellow wine is a specialism of the Jura vineyards - also worth a visit for the landscapes alone.  
Outside the towns and villages, there is endless natural beauty to experience. With several trails around the Grandes Traversées du Jura, choose from hiking, biking or horse riding to make your way through the mountains and discover stunning lakes and waterfalls amid the peaks.
