The canton of Jura offers a wide range of winter activities. Cross-country skiing, snow-shoeing, hiking, dog sledding, snow-kiting and many more!

Discover the enchanting landscapes, enjoy the vastness and seclusion of the Franches-Montagnes as well as the varied activities in the fresh air!


We cannot ensure that all our proposals are available, both in view of the current health situation and the weather.

Welcome! Let the winter magic cast its spell on you and take advantage of the many different winter activities in Jura! Travel comfortably by public transport to Saignelégier.

Discover the Jura landscapes on foot or with snow-shoes on this walk! At the end of the tour, a well-deserved reward awaits you: a regional fondue at Le Peu-Péquignot restaurant.

What better way to relax your cold muscles than to bathe in warm water after your winter walk? In the wellness centre nestled among the idyllic Jura landscape you can relax, recharge your batteries and enjoy the peace and quiet.

Toétché is a salty cream pie. Make sure to taste this typical Jura speciality along with an aperitif!

Bring the day to a close at the Hotel Cristal with a fine night. Tomorrow is a big day!

Has dog sledding been on your wish list for a while? In the canton of Jura, you can even steer a husky sled yourself !

Why travel to the far north when you can experience sledding with huskies here? In Les Bois, a husky pack is waiting to take adventurous guests out! Following an introduction, you will be allowed to steer the dog sled team yourself and pass on commands to the pack.

The plateau of the Franches-Montagnes in the Swiss Jura is the cradle of this Swiss horse breed. Keep your eyes open on your journey through Jura and watch the semi-feral animals living in the vast Wyt pastures.


All winter activities can be done with or without snow.
