Approaching the medieval streets of the historic town of Dole, this EuroVelo 6 stage through Franche-Comté continues to follow the Doubs Valley, which widens out here, with more open landscapes. The river and the Canal du Rhône au Rhin intertwine as the Doubs meanders along. Historic villages and little ports line the way. This pleasant stage is accessible to all.
