France, Walking in the Cevennes

France, Walking in the Cevennes Overview

We stay in a 12C Chateau hotel (4 star), with a 1st class restaurant serving classic cuisine and wines. We walk on ancient drovers’ paths through natural rock formations above the gorges of the rivers Tarn & Jonte & visit mediaeval priories and villages. Running from 23 - 30 May 2021, this 8 day trip costs from £2,556 with a max of 14 guests.

The region of the Causses and the Cévennes was awarded UNESCO world heritage status in 2011, thanks to the traditions of Mediterranean agro-pastoralism which have shaped the landscape over thousands of years. These traditions are very much alive today and continue to contribute to the extraordinary biodiversity of the area.

Following ancient drovers’ paths, we will discover how closely the traditions of pastoralism are interwoven with the history of the landscape. We will also make the most of the wealth of wild flowers, visiting certain sites known for their endemic or rare species such as Ophrys aymoninii, the Early Fly Orchid, and Cypripedium calceolus, the Lady’s Slipper. Walks will allow plenty of time to learn about the natural and human history of this varied and fascinating area.
