D 1
Day 1 – Arrival at FLORAC
a small city at the foot of the Causse Mejean cliffs, and nestled in the confluence of three rivers. It is the entrance to the Gorges of the Tarn. The afternoon will leave you plenty of time to visit Florac, the château and the wonderful narrow roads and squares of the old quarters. Dinner, lodging and breakfast in a two-star hotel
D 2
Day 2 – ISPAGNAC – SAINTE ENIMIE (19 km)
Transfer by taxi to the entrance of the village of Ispagnac. You will walk through the village and admire the 11th and 12th century church. You will cross the old gothic bridge of Quezac, the same bridge trod by pilgrims for many years as they came to pray at the feet of the statue of the Quezac Virgin. Head to the banks of the Tarn and pass around the perimeter of the village of Montbrun, near the château de Charbonnières. You will then reach the surprising village of Castelbouc, where the houses lean against the cliffs, and gaze up to the ruins of the château perched 60 meters high on the rock surface. A resurgence of waters from the Causse Mejean gush out into the village from three different spots. You will see the Château de Prades on the opposite bank and will soon after arrive in Sainte Enimie. Dinner, lodging and breakfast in a two-star hotel
D 3
Day 3 – SAINTE ENIMIE – LA MALENE (15 km)
We invite you to explore the old village of Ste Enimie, clinging to the cliff’s walls, to discover its picturesque, narrow streets and to climb to the cave where Sainte Enimie (Merovingian princess) lived. You will leave the village and cross the river to head to Saint Chely du Tarn, a beautiful village situated at the edge of a huge, desolate corrie and at the foot of intimidating cliffs. You will then discover the corrie of Pougnadoires and the small, cliff-side village. Further along the path, you will come across the beautiful, romantic château of La Caze, and arrive at La Malène, used as a crossing point of the Tarn and is also a place of seasonal transhumance. Have a stroll through the narrow streets towards the 12th century Romanesque church before heading to the 16th century château where you will be staying the night. Lodging and breakfast in a two-star hotel
D 4
Day 4 – LA MALENE – LES VIGNES (14 km)
In the morning, we invite you to take a boat trip along the straights of the Tarn. This part of the river is one of the narrowest and most beautiful of the Gorges. The cliffs rise several hundred meters, and in some places, several kilometres, above the water’s surface and widen to form the fantastic cirque of Baumes. In the afternoon, a taxi will drive you to the village Les Vignes and you will return to La Malene by way of a path that runs along the edge of the cliffs which overlook the straights of the Tarn. You will find here a different view of the gorges, but no less impressive! Dinner, lodging and breakfast in a 2 star hotel
D 5
Day 5 – LES VIGNES – LE ROZIER (15 km)
Transfer by taxi to Les Vignes. You will descend into the Gorges of Tarn by following the left bank of the river. You will pass under the ruins of the Château de Blanquefort and the impressive Rocher du Cinglegros, a huge, threatening rock separated from the cliff. You will pass through isolated hamlets, such as Sablière, provided with supplies by a cable system from the road on the opposite river bank! You’ll get into Le Rozier and Peyreleau, two villages just separated by the Jonte River. Dinner, lodging and breakfast in a two-star hotel
D 6
Day 6 – LE ROZIER
an unforgettable hike (between 12 and 20 km) on the edges of Causse Mejean, above the gorges of the Tarn and the Jonte rivers. This sloping foot path leads you to the small deserted hamlet of Capluc, from where you can reach the Capluc rock. The most daring among you may choose to follow the vertical metal ladders to the Rocher de Capluc, from where an outstanding panorama of the Tarn and Jonte stretches. (This route is not recommended, though, to those suffering from vertigo.) Once you have recovered, you will climb towards the Francbouteille pass. From here, several different paths of varying difficulty – Le Vase de Sèvres (the vase of Sèvres), Le Vase de Chine (the vase of China), and Le Balcon du Vertige (Vertigo’s Balcony) – offer breath-taking views as they bring you across the Causse and to the pass that will lead you back to Peyreleau – Dinner, lodging and breakfast in the same two-star hotel
