JOOKS: the perfect app for discovering La Défense while running!
Sport isn’t always the easiest thing to do while travelling. You may well have packed your running shoes, but once you’re there, its tricky to know where to go. The worst is that we can so easily be put off the idea by the fear of ending up in an uninteresting, or even dodgy area.
Good news! Fraser Suites Harmonie Paris La Défense has joined up with the JOOKS app to offer guests sight-seeing running tours that are audio-guided and 100% free!
JOOKS is an app that offers running tours around more than 150 cities across the world. How it works? The runner is audio-guided by GPS and receives interesting facts about the landmarks they pass along the way.
To offer guests the best running itineraries in the area, Fraser Suite Harmonie Paris has partnered up with JOOKS to design two routes that start from the hotel’s front door
• « Discovering La Défense», 5 km
Renowned for its vast skyscrapers, the district of La Défense sometimes has an American feel to it. While on a run, learn more about the area’s history and variety of monuments.
• « To Neuilly-Sur-Seine », 10 km
Head on out to discover Neuilly-Sur-Seine, one of the most chic districts in Paris! The highlight of this route is the tour of the Bois de Boulogne park. This app is perfect for discovering the district of La Défense and learning more about its history. Another great thing is that it suits absolutely everyone, seeing as you can also use it for walking!
