Relaxation and Discovery on the Water!
Embark on an unforgettable ride to meet an exceptional site: the Saut du Doubs and its Basins.
During this narrated cruise, discover the awe-inspiring spectacle offered by magnificent canyons shaped by nature. Gliding peacefully along the water, appreciate the exceptional beauty of the landscape.
Inaccessible by road, this unique setting leaves you with unforgettable memories. The Doubs Basins and Saut area are classified as a Grand National Site.
Embark on comfortable sightseeing boats that take you meandering along the river before crossing the Lac de Chaillexon, also called the Lac des Brenets.
You then enter the heart of vast basins, called the Gorges du Doubs, whose steep and wild cliffs seem to touch the sky. It is a real treasure that the Doubs has shaped within magnificent canyons. A stopover at the Saut du Doubs gives you access to the belvederes, which overlook the impetuous 27-meter-high drop.
Aboard the Saut du Doubs boats, Madeleine Proust tells you anecdotes about the Haut ‐ Doubs. Indeed, the commentary was recorded with the voices of several actors, including in particular the famous Madeleine Proust and Christophe Bugnon (Swiss actor). The different voices allow you to appreciate the various accents of our region (Swiss and Franche-Comté).
The boat cruise not only allows you to enjoy the breathtaking scenery but also to learn more about the place and the region with fun explanations (historical, geological, contraband, etc.). Did you know that the world record for top-flight diving was established in Villers-le-Lac?

What is a classified site?
The classified sites are tourist places whose exceptional character justifies national-level protection. These are generally remarkable elements or places of which one wishes to preserve the remains or the memory. In total, several tens of thousands of hectares are classified and protected in France by the Ministry of Ecology, Sustainable Development, and Energy.
Recognition and enhancement of the beauty of the site since September 20, 2001, the Saut du Doubs and its pools are listed in the national file of classified sites, alongside other prestigious tourist sites such as the Gorges du Tarn, the Massif du Mont- Blanc or the Île de Ré. This exceptional natural area thus benefits from a program to preserve and enhance the territory in order to ensure its sustainability. Do not hesitate to come and take a cruise at the Saut du Doubs to discover the beauty of the place.
