At Juraventure, at the Col de la Faucille, we offer hiking with our donkey. Ali is very kind, loves children and will brighten up your stay.
We will give you pieces of advice to choose your way: le Petit Mont Rond, le Grand Mont Rond, la Maréchaude...
There and just before going, you could help the team preparing the donkey: grooming, harnessing and feeding depending on the schedule.

Ask for the programme! The children take part in a geological exploration within the Natural Park of the Haut-Jura.
Then, they are invited to a picnic at the Chalet de la Chenaillette and will discover a few stories about pastoral life and the make of the cheese Bleu de Gex Haut-Jura.
A storyteller will speak about the origins of the “Cro Magnon” cavern. An exploration of the Cro cavern will follow, with tales and painting with the children. The journey back along the ridge offers a view over the Lake Geneva area.
