Canal Latéral à la Garonne, Lot, Baïse, Tarn
This region boasts 300 km of navigable waterways, covering five very varied rivers and canals, all rich in history. As well as contrasting landscapes and a wealth of monuments, the region’s reputation for fine food and wine adds to the delights of a river cruise here. There are several remarkable structures to be seen, including the great 549 meters long canal bridge at Agen with its 23 arches.
In Moissac, do not miss the stopover to visit the 11th century abbey, a treasure of medieval art. Then why not lock down into the River Tarn to cruise as far as St-Nicholas de la Grave, 12 km of outstanding natural beauty?
Cruising the Baïse with your self-drive boat, you wind your way through 65 km of lush and intimate countryside. You will then discover from the river fortified towns, gentle hills and flowery meadows. Towns you visit include Vianne, Lavardac and Nérac, seat of the Albret family.
