Millau, Gorges du Tarn. Luxury Cycling Tour.

Itineraries Day stages Pricing

This 5 to 8 days luxury cycling tour is a moderate cycling tour. A light tour is available too. But if you keep cycling down in the canyons and valleys the trip is a light one. When biking up the plateau the tour becomes a moderate or even challenging tour with daily distances of 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).

Gorges du Tarn at Roc Hourtous
Gorges du Tarn

The scenery in the Gorges is rather spectacular.

See here for some Pictures of the Gorges du Tarn.


This tour starts and ends in Creissels or St.Rome-de-Tarn.

From Millau Eastwards the Tarn river and its tributaries carved out 4 canyon like Gorges: Gorges de la Dourbie, Gorges de la Jonte, Gorges du Trèvezel 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.You'll see the Grotte Rose of Dargilan, the unusual scenery of the Causses (Le Chaos de Montpellier le Vieux and Roques Altes).
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. Le Tourisme Vert (green tourism) as they say here. No fast food here, but the French cuisine, honest food in small family runned hotels and you will get a warm welcome.
La Ligne Verte has settled in a small village in the Valley of the Tarn, at 60 km from and halfway Millau and Albi in a nature park, the Parc Régional Naturel des Grands Causses in South-Aveyron.

Château de la Caze

Aveyron is also a rich source of (ancient) culture: the district of Templars, medieval cloisters and places of pilgrimage. And modern art : the Musée Soulages in Rodez.

Apart from the cyclists and hikers, (fly-)fishing, above all a region if you
seek a rather unspoiled nature, quiet and the views of mountains, valleys and karstic plateaus, called Causses.
