The Green Line and the Garonne Channel

7 Days / 6 Nights
View over a bridge to the historic Hospital La Grave in Toulouse

You’ll follow the Garonne canal, the extension of the Canal du Midi that connects Toulouse to the Mediteranean Sea. This sention is called the “Canal des Deux Mers” (the canal of the two seas), that connects the Atlantic Ocean to the Mediteranean Sea: a great itinerary between vineyards and medieval villages, along the Garonne. You will gently cross beautiful towns and cultural sites like Moissac… and don’t forget the gastronomy, inescapable in this region!

A wonderful itinerary! Everything starts in Bordeaux and on the ”Voie Verte” on 50km to Sauveterre de Guyenne and by country of Sauterne, 26km of small roads to Réole, you’ll follow the Garonne canal until Toulouse.

This flat itinerary can be done in both ways. You can choose the one that is more pratical for your access.
