4.1/5 based on 440+ 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 River is the river that flows through, inter alia, Toulouse. Us away we have trodden on the banks, in the area near Pont Neuf and we took some great pictures. We have also seen that you can take trips by ferry.
