The Canal du Midi by bike : Montgiscard / Seuil de Naurouze

[ Cycle routes Canal des deux mers à vélo ] [ The Canal du Midi by bike from Toulouse to Carcassone ]
  • 26.7 km
  • famille Level Family

Up to Le Seuil de Naurouze, the Canal du Midi is shadowed by the Autoroute des 2 Mers motorway, but these parallel ways are worlds apart. Centuries-old plane trees continue to provide green shade for cyclists enjoying a journey transporting them back in time to another era. You should thank the canal’s Ancien Régime designer, Pierre-Paul Riquet, the many wondrous architectural designs along the canal attesting to his genius.

The route
Follow a tarmacked, signposted greenway from the centre of Montgiscard up to Le Seuil de Naurouze – don’t hesitate to wander around the latter, at the watershed point dividing the waters flowing to the Atlantic from those flowing to the Mediterranean, and an exceptional sight.
