Enjoy one of Europe's best cycling adventures, the Canal du Midi, taking you from the pink city of Toulouse to the azure waters of the Mediterranean Sea. Cycle through bustling French towns and charming villages, with lush green countryside constantly in view. With its ingenious engineering, consecutive locks and beautiful aqueducts spanning valleys and rivers, it's not surprising that the tree-lined canal is a UNESCO World Heritage Monument. A thriving food and wine scene awaits, with locals and cyclists enjoying the numerous cafés and restaurants on the banks of the canal. Take advantage of the region's culinary delights, from the hearty dish of cassoulet found inland at Castelnaudary, to the fresh seafood in the port city of Sète. Warm hospitality is a major part of the culture here thanks to the history of trade along the canal, and you'll experience this at our hand-picked hotels and B&Bs.
