This weekend boat trip from Dole will take you to Saint-Jean-de-Losne, the largest French river port, at the crossroads of the Saône, the Burgundy Canal and Rhône-Rhine Canal.
Dole, renowned as a city of art and history, is the location for Nicols first boat rental base -opened in 1991. It is a remarkable setting from which to embark on your boating holiday, cruising the waterways of the Franche-Comté region and being seduced by its many charms.

Holiday reviews from Dole
We had a very enjoyable and relaxing time on our Nicols canal boat. Ourselves and our children, aged 14 and 16, loved it so much we want to come back again, perhaps for a longer time!
