A Burgundy map shows that it’s navigable from Corre all the way to Lyon, a beautiful stretch spanning 371 kilometres (230 miles). Your Burgundy boat rent in France covers some of the prettiest waterways, which include adjoining canals and major tributaries! The river’s source is 396 metres (1,300 feet) above sea level, and the river makes most of its fall before Gray. From Gray all the way to the Rhône the drop is only 34 metres (111 feet). This means that the Saône is a very gentle river — slow, wide and peaceful below St. Jean-de-Losne on the Big Saône. It is narrower and more rural above Axonne on the Petit Saône. The Perfect Boating Region Wine Tasting Did you know that more than 200 million bottles of Burgundy wine are sold every year? Really! And you've got to savour some on your wine tasting cruise! Tour the Côte de Beaune vineyards! Stop by the Maison des Vins in Chalon-sur-Saône for regional wines Nature Lovers Burgundy's rivers and canals are a rich habitat for wildlife. Along the Saône and Doubs you'll find 42 species of mammals, 30 species of fish and 160 species of birds! Watch for bee-eaters, little ringed plovers, kingfishers, golden orioles, and even the common cuckoo! Gastronomy Dining in fine restaurants should be part of your Burgundy Boating Vacations! Try a flan filled with Burgundy snails at Maison Lameloise in Chagny, a 3-star Michelin favorite. How about Idéal mâconnais, a cake made with meringue and butter cream filling? Or pain d'epices (ginger cake)? Fishing A fishing vacation in Burgundy means angling for carp, pike, zander, perch and bream. But the real lure for the passionate angler lurks in the depths of the Saône, to catch the Silurus glanis or giant catfish, try the waters near Beaune!
