Tarn Gorge France Travel Guide A Vagabond Life
Tarn Gorge Travel Guide
The Tarn Gorge is a dramatic gorge running from Le Rozier, north of Millau, to Quézac, in the Lozère department of the Massif Central, northern Langudoc-Roussillon.
Following the course of the Tarn River for 50 kilometres, the Tarn Gorges are among the deepest gorges in Europe – and incredibly beauitful. It is one of the places we try to take visitors as it is so beautiful.
The Tarn Gorge stretches from the stone bridge in Quezac in the north to Les Vignes in the south-west. A scenic road follows through the gorges and makes exploring them very easy. Along the way you can visit the pretty villages of Montbrun, Castelbouc and Sainte Enimie. Other good stopping points include Blajoux and the ‘built in a cliff’ village of Pougnadoires.
The river is very popular with canoeists and it is possible to hire a canoe at one end and paddle down river being collected at the other end and returned to your car.
The scenic route gets very busy during the peak summer months of July and August. To get the best out of this lovely part of France plan to travl in less busy times.
