Mosaic Planet in France

The Ain, five landscapes in one

In the east of the Rhône-Alpes Region, one small “département” provides a medley of some of the most beautiful landscapes our planet has to offer: barren peaks reminiscent of the Alps; verdant hills blanketed with forests of pine or fabulously contorted beech trees; plateaux suggestive of the Mongolian steppe; sparkling cascades, of water in summer, of ice in winter; cultivated fields that, in spring, are as colourful as a Van Gogh painting; and views of Lake Geneva, the largest lake in Western Europe. This area, where five “lands” merge to form a single “département”, is the Ain.
