Garonne
The Garonne River flows through the picturesque regions in the south of France. It forms in the Aran Valley, before forging a route to the Bay of Biscay.

The Garonne is a river that flows through the picturesque and peaceful regions in the south of France. It forms in Spain’s Aran Valley, before travelling around 300 miles to meet up with the Dordogne and forge a route to the Bay of Biscay. When the Garonne and the Dordogne meet they create the Gironde estuary, which is wide enough to allow large sea-faring vessels to sail inland. So much so that ocean ships can reach as far as Bordeaux.

In a rarity for rivers, the Garonne features a tidal bore that travels up the river against the natural current. It also makes up part of a canal which provides a safer route for ships travelling from the Mediterranean to the Atlantic, or vice versa, without having to sail around the Iberian Peninsula. The first part of the ‘Canal des Deux Mers’, the ‘Canal du Midi’, was initiated in 1666 but the section that uses the Garonne river, between Toulouse and Bordeaux, wasn’t constructed until 1856.

Major ports that you may visit during your Garonne river cruise include Bordeaux and Cadillac. This part of France is famous for its numerous vineyards which produce some of the world’s best wines. There is sure to be a chance to sample a few drops along the way, as well as touring the elegant chateaux that line the river bank. Itineraries are often twinned with Dordogne and Gironde River cruises.

Recommended Hotel
Hotel Jardín Tecina

The Hotel Jardín Tecina is a peaceful, picturesque resort located on the idyllic island of La Gomera.  A Canary Island holiday is a great choice all year round, thanks to the enviable climate we enjoy here from January through to December. As you gaze off into the blue horizon, where the Atlantic meets a cloudless sky, your view will be dominated by Mount Teide on the neighbouring island of Tenerife.

Although La Gomera has plenty to see and do, you won’t even need to leave the resort if you don’t want to. We have fantastic facilities in the form swimming pools and other sports activities, as well as a comprehensive spa to help you relax and unwind. Our kid’s club is on hand to help entertain the little ones and when it comes to mealtimes there are plenty of opportunities to try the local cuisine in our range of bars and restaurants. Not forgetting, of course, our impressive 18-hole golf course which winds its way along the cliff-top, offering breath-taking views at every turn.

So come and experience the tranquil atmosphere at the Hotel Jardín Tecina. You’ll enjoy blissful surroundings, fantastic service and return home rested and rejuvenated.
