Canal du Midi En liberté

Van Gogh’s inspiration 

Linking Toulouse to the Mediterranean, the Canal du Midi is characterized by the wondrous luminosity that so inspired Van Gogh. Its rich historical past is reflected in cities like Carcassonne, and its medieval citadel, or Narbonne, the first Roman colony outside Italy. It also offers an abundance of fine cuisine highlighted by cassoulets and sausages. And to allow you to enjoy this wonderful trip to the fullest, your itinerary is structured around three stopover towns from where looped routes give you the flexibility to explore at your own pace.
 
En liberté formula: a more flexible adventure
Before your departure, as for our other formulas, we plan everything: transportation, accommodations, meals and, of course, our exclusive itineraries. Once at your destination, however, you have more freedom organizing your day.

The En liberté bike trip experience is designed for independent cyclists on the route. By opting for this formula, without a guide or relief vehicle, you will receive all the information you need to ensure that your trip goes smoothly, as well as the daily itineraries. The latter propose routes of interest around certain stopover cities, chosen for their offer of services and their accommodations. The En liberté formula - a different kind of adventure that still has the Vélo Québec Voyages touch.

Travelling En liberté means...
  • Being able to choose your departure date mainly between May and September;
  • Travelling as a couple or a family, with your work colleagues or your cycling club;
  • Relying on a Vélo Québec Voyages representative, if you are a group of 10 or more people. This representative will ensure the success of your trip and advise you on your route choices.
