Discovery of Lamoura’s landscapes


Jura is a region where nature holds centre stage. This makes it the ideal place to learn about flora, fauna and the environment, but there’s more to Jura than this!

The Jura region is also known for its rich artisanal heritage. With visits, demonstrations, workshops and tastings, it is the ideal destination to organise a discovery trip for your pupils and introduce them to the crafts and savoir-faire found in Jura.

Finally, our location near the French-Swiss border will allow you to dedicate a day or two to exploring a different culture – that of Geneva.

If you are looking for a place to organise a discovery trip for your pupils in the French mountains, we have everything you need! Our 50 years of experience and our facilities specially designed for school groups will allow you to offer the very best experience to your pupils. What’s more, our ideal location offers you a host of teaching opportunities to help meet your syllabus requirements.
