Create an itinerary including 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.

  • The Garonne appears to be a working river with hydro dam facilities incorporated. It is not the prettiest river we have seen but worth a walk oh a hot Summer Day.
