Description of
the boating holiday

Enjoy nature on a cruise from Dole to Orchamps

During this week-end of sailing on the Doubs from the river port of Dole, you will enjoy unspoilt nature and stops at charming villages, like Rochefort-sur-Nenon and Orchamps.

Departure base

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.

Places to see and things to do

Dole: The ‘little Venice’ of the Franche-Comté region, collegiate Notre-Dame (16th century basilica), birthplace of Louis Pasteur, La Fontaine aux Lepreux

Limestone cliff, panoramic views of the Rhône-Rhine Canal and Mont Blanc.

Orchamps: Historical fountain laundry monument of 1846

When you have explored Orchamps it is time to make the return leg of your journey, perhaps revisiting some of your favourite places as you cruise back to the Nicols base at Dole where you will return your boat.

A very nice introduction to river boating!
The landscapes are superb. We loved cruising in the countryside, the Doubs is beautiful. A very nice introduction to river boating!
