Gorges du Tarn Cycling Tours

Millau, Gorges du Tarn, Causses.

  • 5 to 9 days self guided cycling hotel-tour with baggage transfer.
  • Light, active and sporty tours in a spectacular scenery
  • Standard, plus, superior and luxury packages
  • Optional:  extra nights in any of the hotels of the package for a restday or an extra cycling day.

To keep these bike-tours as a light version you'll be cycling down in the canyons and the valleys. When cycling up the plateau an active or even sporting tour can be made with daily distances from 60 to 90 kms and with 1 to 4 climbs of 400 m per day (rise increase of 7-9 degree, 400m. altitude difference, climbs of 4 - 7 kms long).  

The scenery in the Gorges is rather spectacular.Gorges du Tarn at Roc Hourtous See here for some Pictures of the Gorges du Tarn.

This tour starts and ends in Millau.
 

East of Millau the Tarn river and its tributaries carved out 4 canyon like Gorges: Gorges de la Dourbie, Gorges de la Jonte, Gorges du Trévezèl and the most famous of all the Gorges du Tarn. These Gorges are at the heart ofthe most spectacular walking area of the Grands Causses Natural Parc.

Steep crags of 400m and the typical scenery of limestone plateaux dissected by rivers.You'll  see the Grotte Rose of Dargilan, the unusual scenery of the Causses (Le Chaos de Montpellier le Vieux and Roques Altes).

In this part of  (Southern France, 'le midi' ) genuine countryside and 'La France profonde' still exist.

A district with an extraordinary diversity of landscapes, that you will get to know when hiking and cycling through this far South part of the Massif Central: mountains, limestone plateaus (Causses), lush green valleys, roaring rivers (Tarn, Jonte, Dourbie, Lot, Aveyron, Dourdou).

Lots of small villages here instead of large urban alras with dense population.

No fast food here, but the French cuisine, honest food in small family runned hotels where you will get a warm welcome.
La Ligne Verte has settled in a small village in the Valley of the Tarn, 60 km from Millau and Albi, called Broquiès.

This part of the course of the Tarn is called the "Raspes" and is attractive for those who like quiet, simplicity and unspoiled nature.

It lies in the Parc Régional des Grands Causses in South-Aveyron. Aveyron is also a rich source of (ancient) culture: the district of Templars, medieval cloisters and places of pilgrimage.

And... apart from the cyclists and hikers, a renowned district for bird-watching, mountain-biking, (fly-)fishing, but above all a region for those who seek nature, piece, quiet and farsights of mountains, valleys and plateaus, called Causses.
