Midi / Camargue

Canal du Midi boat hire

The Canal du midi, the most famous canal in the world, together with the medieval city of Carcassonne have both achieved UNESCO world heritage status – a tribute to their historic and natural beauty.  Linking the Atlantic to the Mediterranean, the Canal du Midi runs through beautiful hills in the shadows of the Pyrenees. It then passes tantalisingly close to the Mediterranean in the Camargue. Cruising by boat along the canal there are many ancient towns and villages, where you can discover many hidden treasures, together with local gastronomic and cultural delights.
