A light cycling tour along Tarn river through the friendly Valley of the Tarn.

You will ride partly on the old railway track that never got operational. The trip can be light because we will transfer you to the plateau du Lévézou, so you will have long distances where you will be freewheeling down and back to the valley and enjoy the beautiful views on the St. Affricain hills.


In Broquiès you stay in the guesthouse of frabs Bevort and La Ligne Verte.  You can rent here a canoe and swim with the children in Tarn river (an adventurous, but not dangerous trip of 2½ hours).
At the lake of Villefranche-de-Panat you can swim.

Suited for family's with children from age 8.
Two transfers to bridge elevation gains of more than 300m altitude are included.

Hotels and guesthouses in this trip are 2* average.
