Lakes and peatbogs

ALTITUDE LAKES AND THEIR PEAT BOGS

Haut Jura lakes are surrounded by humid environments in which you can notice a very specific vegetation called “Tourbière(peat bog). In Bellefontaine, you will be able to see theses particular specifications while hiking on the trails “Le Tour des Lacs” or “La Roche Bernard”.
