Outstanding places to go

Burgundy is a land of rivers, lakes and canals. You can get a feel for this on an "Ecopagayeurs" (eco-paddlers) trip at Seurre on the Saône or Bourbon-Lancy on the Loire. From Digoin to Cosne, travel down the last wild river of Europe. The Eden Centre at Cuisery is a veritable hub of bio-diversity. It is located near the Seille, one of the loveliest rivers in France. Test your environmental knowledge!
