The Canal du Midi

on the water

The Canal du Midi is one of the best-known navigational canals, linking Toulouse to the sea as it empties into the Mediterranean at Sète. Whether by bike, on foot or on board a boat, the Canal du Midi may have been built by man in the 19th century, but it's also a great way to immerse yourself in nature and admire some stunningly beautiful scenery. Running parallel to the Garonne, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Because all beautiful things must be earned, take a short 1? hour round trip to the Roquefort-Les-Cascades waterfalls. Located to the south of the pink city, this walk is perfect if you're looking for a hike around Toulouse. Accessible in an hour by car, this short stroll takes in waterfalls made of tuff, a crumbly limestone.
