Level of difficulty:
The Canal du Midi is an ideal route for anyone wanting to take a leisurely ride and relax for a week of cycling with friends or family. From lock to lock and bridge to bridge, the canal will carry you from the heart of Toulouse to Marseillan, on the Mediterranean Coast. Enjoy some time exploring the narrow labyrinthine streets of the 'pink city' of Toulouse before heading off along the canal to the Plaines du Lauragais, Castelnaudary and on to the towering fortified town of Carcassonne. You'll also pass by the seven locks of Fonséranne and the Etang de Thau (complete with oyster beds), before arriving at the Med. Price includes 6 nights' B&B accommodation, 4 evening meals, baggage transfers, detailed road book, maps and GPS tracks. Available guided or unguided.
All accommodation has been checked to ensure it meets our cycle-friendly criteria. We also deal with tour operators personally before adding them to the site. To recommend a great French cycling holiday or a nice bike-friendly place to stay, please email [email protected]
