Gay Midi Pyrennes travel guide

The Midi-Pyrenees is set on the highest part of the Pyrenean chain where peaks reaching 9,850 feet and more abound: Vignemale (10,800 ft), Pic du Midi (9,400 ft), Pic du Balaïtous (10,300ft), etc. Much loved by medium and high altitude enthusiasts, the Midi-Pyrenees counts three resolutely mountainous departments: the Haute-Garonne (in its southern part), the Ariège and the Hautes-Pyréneés, to which the plateaus of Aubrac in Aveyron must be added. All of these for as many sources of pleasure, encounters and varied activities, the whole year round.

The Midi-Pyrenees boasts a great number of valleys, which are appreciated for their natural resources and cultural diversity. Among the largest and best known, five valleys stand out among the rest: those of the Dordogne, the Aveyron, the Tarn, the Lot, and the Garonne. These are the settings of ancient adventures as witnessed by the towns, fortified towns and châteaus nestled within their hospitable hollows, and the theatres of new adventures such as a great many walks, hikes and white-water sports.

Although the Midi-Pyrenees does not boast a coastline, it is however a water region with its 80 stretches of water and the 1,550 miles of rivers and torrents that feed them.

By boat, you'll see the Midi-Pyrenees in a completely different way. With the canals of southern France, the Baïse and the Lot, our region promises an unusual view of the country. Forget your car: we have houseboats, trip boats and other hotel boats ready to take over and take you wherever your fancies may lead you to discover the beauty of the countryside and the warmth of the inhabitants of southwestern France.

That might not be such a bad idea before going onto Toulouse, home to France's third largest city in terms of gay and lesbian establishments and boasting France's second largest university. You'll find a gay nightlife positively pulsating with youth and vitality.

Perhaps one of the most romantic ways of witnessing the region's wild diversity and rich heritage is by boat floating leisurely down the Canal du Midi. Whichever means of transportation you choose, don't miss out on the other hotspots of gay and lesbian action in Cahors and Albi.
