Come cycle the Canal Du Midi with Relax Bike Tours, the only bike touring company actually located on the Canal Du Midi. Using the highest quality products available along with the most detailed route maps, this will be a pleasure for both young and old alike. Our tours are organized in partnership with a local travel agency, as required by French law, giving you extra peace of mind. We offer many bike tours along the Canal Du Midi.

Day 1. Carcassonne - Canal Du Midi Essential self guided bicycle tour
Arrival by car, train, or airplane directly into Carcassonne. You will have plenty of time to visit the medieval Cité of Carcassonne. The Cité is the largest medieval castle in the world, and its cobbled streets, drawbridges, and narrow streets are said to have inspired Walt Disney's Sleeping Beauty.
Bike delivery at your hotel in the evening. You will be fitted to your bike. If you brought your own pedals or seat they will be put on at this time as well (please let us know before hand so we can bring the proper tools). Handout and review of roadbook.
Spend night in lovely 3*** hotel with pool at the feet of the Cité.

OPTION: Extend your bike rental by one more day and take the train from Carcassonne to Castelnaudary and cycle back along the Canal Du Midi the day before. Leave excess luggage at hotel so you can travel as light as you want.

Day 2. Carcassonne - Homps ~45Km / 27 Miles - Canal Du Midi Essential self guided bicycle tour
After a good night's sleep and a healthy breakfast you will leave Carcassonne behind you cycling along the Canal Du Midi, passing vineyards, locks, poppy fields, and sunflower fields. Enjoy the peace and silence watching the many small boats passing by on the canal.
Spend night in excellent hotel on the bank of Canal Du midi in Homps.

Day 3. Homps - Argeliers ~30Km / 19 Miles or Homps - Narbonne ~40Km / 24 Miles - Canal Du Midi Essential self guided bicycle tour
Option Argeliers: This option allows you to keep following the Canal Du Midi. You will have time today to take it easy, cycling past Le Somail. Le Somail was founded by Paul Riquet and served as one of the overnight stays for passengers on the mail boat. Le Somail is picture perfect. It is also home to a very large bookstore.
Spend night in a lovely bed & breakfast in Argeliers. Pool available in center of village next to restaurant.

Option Narbonne: This option is a bit longer but also easy to do. Follow the Canal Du Midi until you reach Le Somail, from where the route will start heading south and away from the Canal Du Midi. After a few kilometers riding on small paved county roads with little to no traffic, you will reach the Canal de la Robin
