Millau, Gorges du Tarn. Bike tour in Parc des Grands Causses.


  • 5 to 9 days self guided cycling hotel-tour with baggage transfer.
    Packages Stages Prices

  • Optional:  extra nights in any of the hotels of the package for a rest-day or an extra cycling day.

These bike tours are light tours because you will be cycling down in the canyons and valleys and you will not go up to the causses.   Gorges du Tarn at Roc HourtousIf you'd like to ride onto the causses we can arrange for some transfers. You will only bike flat and down. If you indicate your interest in this we'll send you a quote.

The scenery in the Gorges is rather spectacular. 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, and the most famous of all the Gorges du Tarn. These Gorges are at the heart of the most spectacular walking area of the Grands Causses Natural Parc. Steep crags of 400m and the typical scenery of limestone plateaux dissected by rivers.

In this part of  Southern France, ('le midi') countryside is unspoiled. 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, and roaring rivers (Tarn and Jonte).

You will visit lots of small (some of which very old) villages from Medieval to Roman times.

No fast food here, but the French cuisine, honest food in small family run hotels where you will get a warm welcome.

These bike-tours in the Parc Régional des Grands Causses in South-Aveyron include the Gorges du Tarn in Lozère.
