Garonne, Toulouse

4.5
#1 of 11 in Nature in Haute-Garonne
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.

  • Beautiful river that a boulevard to parade were lacking. Many loitering under the bridges, noisy and wierokende teenagers.

  • Very nice ride at night. In the Moonlight, beautiful lights. Small groups of music, the shouts of the guinguettes, warm breeze, it's good to live in the pink city.
