France – Canal du Midi Bike Tour (2023)

France – Canal du Midi Bike Tour 2022 7 Days/ 6 Nights or 10 Days / 9 Nights Self Guided The Canal du Midi is undoubtedly the most beautiful canal in France and Europe. It was built by Pierre Paul Riquet between 1667 and 1681 in order to link the Mediterranean to Atlantic Ocean. This idea had already been dreamt of by the Romans but was only carried out sixteen centuries later and even at that time was a considerable technological achievement. All along the 260 km of canal situated in the South of France with its 64 locks, you will come across authentic and varied landscapes where time seems to stand still silent. Cars and industry are missing, here the bicycle reigns, riding along the towpath under century old plane trees. This tour has been extended for even more highlights; you’ll now also discover 2 other canals dating from the 18th Century, namely the Canal de la Robine to Narbonne, and the Rhone-Sète canal between Montpellier and Sète.
