Day 1

Arrival in Les Brenets | Les Brenets – Maison Biaufond

Luggage drop-off in La-Chaux-de-Fonds and by bus and train to Les Brenets. Picturesque and wild gorges open up here. You could almost call them fjords. The rocks cut by nature have the shape of a human face and the head of a legendary monster. The path leads to the Saut du Doubs, a spectacular 27 m high waterfall. 

Details: approx. 19 km ↑ 540 m ↓ 800 m
Duration: approx. 5 h

Day 2

Maison Biaufond – Goumois

It is hard to imagine how much industry (glaziers, sawmills, mills) there was on the Doubs 200 years ago. Today, only a few traces of the intensive industrial activity are still visible, for example in Le Theusseret just before Goumois, the finish of the second stage.  

Details: approx. 21 km ↑ 540 m ↓ 660 m
Duration: approx. 5.5 h

Day 6

Goumois – Soubey

On the way you often meet fishermen. The Doubs has a unique fish stock, including the real Doubs trout with its black stripes, barbel, grayling, pike and of course the rare apron, also called Roi du Doubs.  

Details: approx. 13 km ↑ 200 m ↓ 220 m
Duration: approx. 3.5 h

Day 4

Soubey – St-Ursanne | Departure

Just before St. Ursanne, the Doubs makes a sharp 180-degree turn, as if it didn't know where to go. Perhaps the radical change of direction is the reason why the Romans called the meandering river Doubs. The word comes from the Latin "dubitus", the hesitant, doubting. After arrival in St. Ursanne individual departure.

Details: approx. 15 km ↑ 200 m ↓ 240 m
Duration: approx. 4 h

Tour characteristic

An easy hike without major differences in altitude. In humid conditions the paths can be a bit slippery, otherwise it is a perfect pleasure hike.
