Ognon is an ideal place to take a small canoeing trip. This city, which is found between the Burgundy and the Franche Comté, is also one of the best places to enjoying bathing in the river.
The water is of good quality and during the summertime the beach is patrolled by lifeguards. A true delight for lovers of nature, or those who enjoy peace and quiet.
