Au fil du Doubs

Au fil du Doubs

This hike does full justice to its name. The trail leads from Les Brenets near La Chaux-de-Fonds to St. Ursanne, almost always alongside the River Doubs and crossing the Doubs Regional National Park from west to east.
What could be better than a four-day hike alongside the River Doubs, with time to tank up on energy, relax and enjoy the unspoiled natural world away from civilisation! And in some places even (not exactly by choice) do without phone calls, surfing and Twitter!

The trail follows the river, passing scenic and symbolic gems such as the Saut de Doubs, the Échelles de la Mort, La Goule, the French-Swiss border village of Goumois, Soubey and finally the medieval town of St. Ursanne. On the first two stages, the Doubs forms the border between France and Switzerland before it makes a 23km long loop in Swiss territory.

The many restaurants lining the route serve home-made trout specialities, sometimes blue, sometimes in a delicate herb sauce. Now and then a bridge, walkway or even a boat invite you to cross the river.
