Le Somail / Narbonne Canal des 2 Mers by bike - Atlantic / Mediterranean sea
1 h 12 min
Mountain Bike advised
This is a major additional stage that comes highly recommended. It leads you towards the city of Narbonne via a short stretch alongside a linking canal up to Sallèles-d’Aude. Then, given the lack of other options to cross the river, you need to continue via Cuxac-d’Aude along a road shared with motorized traffic to reach the Canal de la Robine at Raonel Lock. From there, a lovely, well-laid-out, signposted greenway leads to Narbonne itself.
