Anytime is a good time to take a stroll on the banks of the Canal du Midi – the water “highway” built in the 17th century to link the Atlantic Ocean with the Mediterranean Sea – but fall brings with it a kaleidoscope of colors on the trees bordering the canal and a feeling of peace, of a nature that tries to “find a cozy place” to prepare for winter.
The banks of the Canal du Midi are an ideal cycling place. In fact all the way from Thau Lake where the Canal du Midi meets the Mediterranean sea water to Castets-en-Dorthe that marks the junction of the Canal to the Garonne River and further to the Atlantic Ocean the edge of the Canal is one long – more than 400 km – cycle path!
