St-Jean-de-Losne is defined by the river Saône waterfront. For all time – and for all purposes – this river has been a motivating force for both the town and its economic activity. Today, the commercial cargo barge traffic has been replaced by pleasure boats tourism. The local businesses –some of them globally known – adapted their activities in this direction and now offer a wide range of pleasure boat services. The grouping of municipalities “Rives de Saône”, in charge of developing the local economy
and tourism, supports this evolution by different means, such as the creation of commercial areas, enhancement of the local fluvial heritage and promotion of the waterways and its infrastructure in partnership with the Burgundy/Franche Comté region. This “Salon Fluvial” is a showcase for the local businesses to demonstrate their “savoir faire” and has become an unmissable event for boat enthusiasts from far and wide. Welcome to the Saône river, enjoy!
