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


The B04-packages start and end 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 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).

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

Between Albi and Millau the course of the Tarn-river is called the "Gorges des Raspes du Tarn". You'll find here quiet, simplicity and unspoiled nature and hills up to 700m.

The Grand Causses are a Regional Nature Parc in South of Aveyron. Aveyron is also a rich source of (ancient) culture: the district of Templars, medieval cloisters and places of pilgrimage.
