The Two Seas canal and the green cycle path

If the Tarn and its tributary the Aveyron lend themselves to canoeing, the Two Seas canal is perfect for leisurely boating trips. The Two seas canal comprises the famous Midi canal (1666-1681) between Toulouse and Sète (classified a World Heritage Site by UNESCO), and the Garonne canal (1838-1856) between Toulouse and Bordeaux; thus linking Bordeaux and Toulouse in the county of Tarn-et-Garonne.

Cruising down the canal allows you to visit three specific navigational landmarks: the unique water slope at Montech, the Cacor canal bridge at Moissac and the Saint-Jacques rotating bridge, also at Moissac.
