L'Isle-sur-le-Doubs / Baume-les-Dames EuroVelo 6 - Cycle Route of the rivers
Canals & intimate rivers
2 h 11 min
I cycle often
This is a splendid EuroVelo 6 stage in the Franche-Comté, the cycle path closely following the meanders in the Doubs River before a panoramic arrival at Baume-les-Dames. The valley is full of charm and enlivened by pleasure boats. It all makes for one of the most spectacular stretches of EuroVelo 6, but it is accessible to all.
