The gorges of Tarn and the Causses,
      an exceptional voyage in the heart of the Central-Massif.      

     

Discovering the Gorges of the Tarn, there is an enchanting journey of almost 80km between Florac and Millau, wedged between Sauveterre and Méjean Causses.
The surprise will be for you at every moment, with each turning : here a rock with a mushroom shape, there an imposing cliff covers the houses over up, here a pebble beach levels in the middle of Tarn's waters, there a picturesque village emerges from the foliages, seeming to hide from that high perched castle, dominating its rock proudly...

Each one can go through the Gorges at its own tempo.
First of all, the road of the Gorges skirting right bank offers a varied landscape. The narrow hiking trail located on left bank, at foot of the rock face, will make you feel, on a finger touch, the power, the majesty of the Gorges. As for the descent by small boat or by canoe, it will offers to you a particular vision of the Gorges, sometimes soft, sometimes chaotic, but always rhythmed by the subtle lapping of the running waves.
Throughout Tarn, sumptuous landscapes alternate with astonishing villages and picturesque castles. The abrupt limestone walls, whose colors oscillate between gray and ochre, are overhung by rocks with notched forms.


l'enfilade des Détroits vue du Point-Sublime
To feel all the majesty and the immoderation of the Gorges of Tarn, it is necessary amongst other things to go to the Sublime Point, at the edge of Causse of Sauveterre. Here, the landscape will catch you right there, deep in your imagination, in your mind, in your soul. You will dominate this vertiginous falling-down of cliffs from where jut out spectacular limestone pitons. You will discover there the threading of the Détroits, the Cirque des Baumes, the Rock Aiguille...


It is from granite of Lozere-Mount that springs the Tarn up. The small thread of water winding in the middle of the peat bogs quickly becomes a brook with cold and thundering waters. It follows the ledge of the Cevennes until wetting Florac and Ispagnac.
The valley is tightened, like sharp sliced by the Tarn, sometimes giving the impression that both Causses of Sauveterre and Méjean meet up there in the sky.



Very soon, we will probably continue farther with you this strolls in the heart of the Gorges of the Tarn. Leave us a small message, you will be informed of the continuation of the voyage. Thank you for your understanding.
