Description

Linking the Mediterranean Sea to the Atlantic Ocean, the Canal du Midi is one of mankind’s exceptional achievements… so exceptional that it’s been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Ideal for navigating by barge, this 260 km-long canal is also perfect for cycling! The tow paths along the canal, along with quiet roads, make it easy for cyclists to discover some of the remarkable sites in the region: the harbor of Sète, the medieval walled city of Carcassonne (another UNESCO World Heritage Site), the town of Agde and its fortified Romanesque cathedral, and the 2,000-year-old Roman bridge in Béziers… to name a few.

Each day’s ride is intentionally short so you can tour at your own pace without feeling rushed or regimented. With manageable terrain, you’ll arrive at each destination feeling relaxed and eager to explore — although the journey itself is magical in its own right.
