Bordering Spain’s Catalonia and the Mediterranean Sea, Languedoc offers a patchwork of landscapes and sites. While some parts of Languedoc cannot be experienced in the winter—unless you trade your bike for skis—others can be explored all year-round.

Whether Roman or medieval such as Pont-du-Gard or Carcassonne; whether inland or on the coast such as Saint-Guilhem-du-Desert or Sete, sites abound in Languedoc. Some have been deemed so exceptional that they’re been declared UNESCO World Heritage Sites. This includes the Canal du Midi which links Sete to Toulouse. With a traffic-free bikeway along, it is the ideal way to explore this area. As you will see from our Languedoc regional page, we offer quite a selection of trips in Languedoc.
