Les Brenets - Saut du Doubs
Unspoilt nature, a fjord-like river, the highest waterfall in the Jura Mountains, walking paths of poetic charm, an airborne footbridge which stretches from one side of the Doubs to the other eliminating the border.
A tranquil cruise
Starting out at the harbour of Les Brenets, you embark on a tranquil cruise on the lake formed by the Doubs, the Lac des Brenets. The slow river forms wide meanders and weaves peacefully through a magnificent landscape marked by abrupt cliffs and pine trees. An enchanting sight!
The highest waterfall in the Jura
Here, the Doubs shows quite another face, a much wilder one, as it continues on its path, roaring down an impressive waterfall of 27 m, the Saut du Doubs. A walkway takes you to the French side where you are able to enjoy a different view of the magnificent cascade and its gushing water.
Hiking in an unspoilt nature scenery
The Doubs waterfall can also be reached on foot from Les Brenets on a lovely which follows the river. In the middle of unspoilt nature, pine and broadleaf forests mingle with steep rocky cliffs, offering some spectacularly beautiful views. An experience which is not to be missed, especially in autumn.
On foot: from Les Brenets station, approximately 50 minutes
By boat: on a NLB boat on the lake des Brenets. Takes 20 minutes + 10 minutes on foot from the landing stage
