Cruise map the River Saone & River Seille

Click map to zoom

In the Franche Comte region, renowned for its gastronomy and wines, you can cruise along the unspoilt rivers shaded by oaks and willows, where you may glimpse grey herons, kingfishers or wild ducks. You can either take the Petite Saone with few locks, as well as the Burgundy canal, the river Doubs or even the Canal de la Marne a la Saone.

In the Bresse, famous for its chickens, discover the quiet wetlands and half-timbered houses that make this such a jewel. The river Seille , tributary of the Saone, is a superb river which runs through the Bresse Bourguignonne.
At Louhans, take time to visit the Monday market amid the arcades of the 16th century.
