Five great reasons to embark on the Doubs or Saône
1- The Saône is remarkable for its enjoyable boating and the beauty of its landscapes, especially along “la Petite Saône”. In fact, this is the most-visited water course in France after the Canal du Midi.
2- The Saône offers an exceptional natural setting including 13,400 hectares listed Natura 2000.
3- Lively villages await you along the banks of the Saône: discover the International Folklore Festival of Port-sur-Saône, enjoy a taste of local products with gourmet Tuesdays at Gray, and much more.
4- The Doubs winds along 200 km through enchanting natural sites.
5- The Doubs gives you the opportunity to stop over in towns with an exceptional historic heritage: Montbéliard and its Dukes of Württemberg castle; Baume-les-Dames, a typical village full of character; Besançon and its fortifications designed by Vauban; and Dole, a city of Art and History, and the birthplace of Louis Pasteur.
