Cruise routes on the River Saône France

Bases at Scey sur Saone, Deluz, Macon and St Leger sur Dheune

The Saône is one of France's most attractive rivers, with few locks, rural scenery, and generously proportioned farmhouses, their window boxes gay with flowers.
On the forest floor too, the earth brings forth a generous offering of mushrooms.
The well-preserved villages in the Mâconnais and the Dôle region are a constant delight.
Climbing north on the Canal des Vosges through the forests of the Vosges you glide through an amphitheatre of ash, silver birch and other trees.
The towns of Fontenoy-le-Château and Epinal reveal their many charms.
From Dôle to Besançon the Canal du Rhone au Rhin follows the course of the River Doubs past rocky cliffs and between wooded slopes.
To arrive in Besançon is truly dramatic.
A tunnel 394m long allows you to pass right underneath the great fortress built by Vauban in the 17th century and to make a complete circuit of the city by water.
