Don't miss: the Rocher du Singe (Monkey Rock) overhanging Goumois and the Vautenaivre Reach (a footpath running along the Doubs 2 km downstream from Goumois).

The village of Goumois (Switzerland) has a population of 92 and has been part of the borough of Saignelégier since 2009. It is interesting to note that the separation of Goumois dates back to 11 July 1780, when the Prince-Bishop of Basle issued a border treaty ceding the part of the municipality of Franquemont located on the left bank of the Doubs to the French in return for Boncourt, Bure and Damvant. Goumois is a well-known site for canoeing, kayaking and fly-fishing. A rocky ledge overhangs the village on the French side, offering a view down into the Doubs Valley.
