Canal du Midi Cycle Holiday

Cycle along France's most famous canal on this guided tour

Offered by:
Fellow Velo

Phone number:
+44 (0)7811 285 021 or +44 (0)1788 568 371

Tour length:
11 days

Level of difficulty:
Easy

Price:
£935 (camping option), £1335 (B&B option) with discounts for under 14s

Experience one of France's most popular canals by bike, taking the famous canal from Toulouse right the way through to the Med and then along the coast towards Provence. You'll use the canal as a rough guide, but you'll also leave it to explore the vineyards, olive groves and historic towns around it – there is more to this lovely corridor than its famous waterway. This fully guided and supported ‘Length and Breadth’ tour gives you the chance to get close to nature, camping your way along the canal but without the hassle of having to carry your own camping kit or tent (or even pitching it). If you prefer you can stay in B&Bs rather than camping, the choice is yours. Price includes support car, luggage transfers and guide, all campsite breakfasts or B&B if selected, plus lunches en route and some evening meals. You can combine this tour with the Atlantic Coast and Entre Deux Mers trips to navigate your way from the top of France to the bottom.
