Best Things To Do In Languedoc

It’s all fine to relax by the pool with friends at your luxury Chateau in Languedoc, but there is so much more to do and see in the area. Check out these suggestions for activities in Languedoc to make sure your group has something to look forward too.

1. Relax Bike Tours offers a relaxing bike tour along the canal.

Cycling

Self-guided biking tours along the Canal du Midi are great for groups. The towpath is relatively flat so you don’t need Bradley Wiggins style quads. Overhanging trees offer shade from the sun and encourage a slower pace. The canal path is beautiful to admire, with its pale green water and surrounded by orderly trees.

Relax Bike Tours can deliver their bikes anywhere between Toulouse to Sete. If you need them, they can also pick them up and take you back to your villa. To avoid falling by the canal-side, stock up on calories-rich French treats like baguettes, cheese, and croissants.

2. Enjoy a cruise on the canal with La Compagnie des Bateaux Du Midi

La Compagnie des Les Bateaux du Midi

La Compagnie des Les Bateaux du Midi is able to organize a day trip for you, your friends, and take you on a cruise down the Canal du Midi. Start from Beziers, and then stay on the deck while the boat floats past many of the UNESCO-listed waterways. The Malpas Tunnel is an excavated tunnel that allows water to flow through a hill, and the Orb Aqueduct are both worth mentioning. Lunch is served aboard, so you don’t need to take a break.

3. Go underground at Grotte de la Salamandre

This enormous underground cave, which is roughly the same size as a football stadium, was not accessible to the public until 2012. This was until the authorities drilled tunnels that allowed visitors to access the cave on foot. You’ll be shocked at how much we owe those excavators once you enter the main chamber. There are a number of stunning stalactites, stalagmites, and glittering crystals inside, all lit by atmospheric lights to highlight the unique textures and shapes.

4. Stroll through La Bambouseraie

It is difficult to describe La Bambouseraie in words. However, it is worth noting that the bamboo gardens are a visual treat. The long straight stalks will make you want to snap photos of them. They cast light-and shadow patterns on their surroundings in a way that is graphic and unique. There is also an impressive Japanese garden and a fascinating Laotian village built of bamboo.

Make sure you have enough food for everyone and take a picnic. Mid-week and shoulder seasons are when visitor numbers drop and La Bambouseraie offers pure bliss.

5. Camargue Autrement 4×4 allows you to ride in comfort.

Ride in a 4x4 with Camargue Autrement

This 4×4 safari trip will delight any cowboys in your group. It takes you into the wilds and deltas of Camargue, France’s Wild West. The Camargue, contrasted with the Pyrenees’ striking peaks, is a much more laid-back pastiche of red salt lagoons and rice paddies, as well as reed-choked marshes. Camargue is home to wildlife, including photogenic flocks a brilliantly pink flamingos that gather in Camargue for food. There are also distinctive black-horned bulls and semi-wild white horses.

Location: Port Royal, 30240 Le-Grau-du-Roi

6. Navivolie – Sail the seas!

Navivoile

Gather your crew together and raise the sails for an adventure at the high seas with Navivoile. From Canet port, you’ll travel south along the stunningly beautiful coast to arrive in the idyllic Bay of Paulilles. Relax and enjoy the beautiful coastal views as you cruise along, stopping to snorkel or swim with the masks onboard the vessel. You can enjoy a delicious lunch onboard, which includes sausages, shrimp, salad and sangria.

7. Canoe Blanc and Canoe Blanc will help you traverse the Tarn

Tarn River Gorge

One of the most beautiful places in South France is the Tarn River Gorge. The gorge’s deep, crystalline water-filled corridor rises to the top. Its steep rock walls can reach up to 500m in height. You will find a number of charming villages and towns along the banks of the river. Some appear to be falling down the cliff sides.

Although you can drive through the gorge, it is difficult to keep your eyes on the twisting hairpin streets and the beautiful views. Instead, we recommend renting a Canoe Blanc canoe and traveling by river. You can stop wherever you like to swim, eat, or just enjoy the incredible views.
