Pedal along the Voie Bleue
The Voie Bleue Moselle-Saône is an excellent way to explore this river and the surrounding area at your own pace, and is a very pleasant cycle path!
The port here is the leading river port in France, and every year in June, the big traditional celebration, the "Pardon des Mariniers" takes place here.
And the Vauban Arsenal, one of the rare to still be completely preserved.
Capital of the "pôchouse", a dish made with fish from the Doubs and the Saône.
A boat trip along the Saône
Set off on a peaceful cruise along this beautiful river: drift past the surrounding landscapes, and you'll have time to observe them, reflect, and daydream. A real change of scenery as you prepare to pass through each lock, and meet other visitors or boaters along your way.
Recommendation: bring your bike aboard the boat to be able to explore the surrounding area easily...
Drop your anchor!
