The Gorges du Tarn
To the north of Millau, the numerous torrents of the Tarn have carved a real canyon in the limestone plateau. Fabulous and varied sections await both those who will discover them whilst walking along the footpaths and roads as those who will do so from the water. The limpid calm waters are ideal for discovering the joys of family canoeing, while the bubbling rapids are the source of a large number of activities: rafting, canyoning, kayaking etc, will satisfy the most intrepid.
Certain people will love climbing the gorges’ steep rock faces. Other people will admire the succession of cirques and rocky chaos from their bike. And heritage and culture lovers won’t be disappointed either: historic vestiges, châteaux, fortresses and churches line the gorges.
Take a break:
Château de Peyrelade
Mediaeval site literally clinging to the rock. The château dominates the valley.
