Garonne, Toulouse

(4.2/5 based on 480+ reviews on the web)
Garonne is one of the few rivers in the world that has a tidal bore. This makes it a perfect spot for jet skiing and surfing because you can ride the waves as far as 120 km (75 mi) from the Atlantic Ocean. For a fun sightseeing excursion, watch as the lateral canal takes ships through 53 locks to Toulouse, where the canal meets Canal du Midi, the next stage of the Canal des Deux Mers. For a tour of Toulouse from the water's edge, book a cruise along the river, steering through Saint Pierre's Lock, the Canal de la Brienne, then the three tributaries of Ponts Jumeaux. Put Garonne into our Toulouse travel itinerary maker to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Toulouse.

  • The Garonne, Garona in occitan, is a very special river for all those living in its proximity and a tradition multiseculaire continued particularly in Toulouse and all the former region Midi-Pyrénées: the Garonne River is not a river for us, it's an immortal person! You who read this article are not laughing. Our Earth culture, peasant, we are very proud. For us this means the link to our land, that we grow and that nourishes us, as mother earth. It is also the link to the family in the broad sense, IE to the friends and neighbors close by the heart. And for all those who live near her, it is Garonne. No No, I wrote well, we prénommons her Garonne, we don't call her the Garonne. For those living in its proximity, Garonne is really a living being, a whole person. It is our latin side! It comes from the bottom of the ages: hard to believe or understand for people who have not lived in this culture. Garona was already divinised by the tectosages Celts, Romans who worshipped them as rivers have increased this customization in the representative divinised in female character. Since this way of perceiving and living our river it is transmitted from generation to generation. You can't identify our soul if you do not understand our river.
