Hiking in the Gorges du Tarn and the Causses
There’s nothing like a walk to travel back through time and learn the story of people from this land, hear their legends and understand their culture.
There are many official marked out trails where you can enjoy the landscape diversity. Some of them can be accessed right from the campsite, others are just a few minutes away by car. Whether you want to walk along the Tarn river, enjoy the sight from the Sauveterre cliffs or be amazed by the virgin land of Causse Méjean that stretches away endlessly in the distance, you’ll always find a path to follow...
The “chemins de petite randonnée” (small hiking trails) abbreviated as PR are narrow paths made by men or animals, like mule tracks or cart tracks. They form 1 to 7-hour walk loops exploring every nook and cranny of the land, past many hamlets, “jasses” (sheep meadows), farm remains, hive trunks, rocky headlands, “chazelles” (small typical constructions), one street villages, forests, megaliths… These PR also lead to some of the most prestigious views that will spark your imagination.
