The ideally located base in Saint-Jeand-de-Losne allows you to take a number of cruises in different directions (including one-way). From Dôle to Besançon, the Rhone au Rhin Canal flows between sloping cliffs and forested slopes.

An impressive 394-metre-long tunnel leads to Besançon, allowing passage under the citadel and a detour around the town. Besançon is a town full of fountains and refined houses. From the quay, it is easy to reach the citadel of the builder Vauban.

The Saône River and the more southerly Seille River give numerous opportunities for swimming.

The Seille River, with its special charm, is not to be missed - a gentle landscape of small lakes and pastures leads you to Louhans, where you can admire, among other things, houses with facades dating from the 15th and 16th centuries.

Rediscover the natural, unspoilt beauty of nature and attractive towns and villages. Sample fine wines in their place of origin and enjoy delicious cuisine in luxury restaurants.
