Ride through medieval towns and roll along canal towpaths
+44 (0)1653 617003
The southern region of Languedoc-Roussillon is famed for its Mediterranean climate and vineyards among rolling hills and pretty villages, historic churches and cypress trees. Medieval Carcassonne is perhaps the jewel in its crown. Wander the streets of Carcassonne from the comfort of your 4-star hotel – a wonderful start to your holiday. On your second day, enjoy a leisurely ride alongside the Canal du Midi via a series of ornate locks and bridges, then end with an energetic circuit into the foothills of the Montagne Noire to the picturesque village of Minerve, with its ancient walls and citadel. The scenic Gorge de la Cesse is another highlight, and the sense of variety is such that you will feel as though you have been away for far longer than a mere three days. The price of this tour includes 4 nights' accommodation, 4 breakfasts, luggage transfers, route notes and maps, high-quality bicycle, and a return taxi from Carcassonne airport. Ebikes are also available.
