Not far from Italy on the Swiss border Ain occupies a strategic position between Lyon and Geneva. The diverse landscape is why Ain is often referred to as a walker's paradise.
Choose from the flat marshlands of the Dombes, the rich agricultural Bresse plain or the Jura Mountains and the Bugey peaks to the south.
Almost every conceivable sport is possible here from extreme sports & skiing to fishing, cycling, horse riding & golf.
Bourg-en-Bresse is known for poultry farming, Peugeot trucks and the abbey-church at Brou - one of the most visited attractions in France and an absolute must on your tour to the Ain department.
