Millau, Gorges du Tarn. Luxury Cycling Tour.

Packages Day stages Pricing

This 5 to 9 days superior***/**** cycling tour is a moderate cycling tour. A light tour is available too. If you keep cycling down in the canyons and valleys this 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. We provide route directions for light and moderate stages, so you can choose.

Most stages are in the Gorges area but some (going to Sèverac-le-Château) go even into the Aubrac and are more challenging.

The scenery in the Gorges is rather spectacular.

This tour starts and ends in Creissels near Millau.

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 and cycling area of the Grands Causses Natural Parc. Steep crags of 400m and the typical scenery of limestone plateaus 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).

Here le "Midi" (South of France) begins: A nice climate, : mountains, limestone plateaus (Causses), lush green valleys, roaring rivers (Tarn, Jonte, Dourbie, Lot, Aveyron, Dourdou). No fast food here, but the French cuisine, honest food in small family-run 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  the Parc Régional Naturel des Grands Causses in South-Aveyron.

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