Hike Tour du Larzac Meridional

Hiking on the Southern side of the Larzac Plateau

6 days / 5 nights - 4 days / 3 nights

Panorama sur les Cévennes voisines

The Southern side of the Larzac Plateau is the last limestone massif above the Mediterranean Sea. The altitude (between 600m and 900m) combined to the location of this plateau render a land characterized by its climate, the fauna and the plants. Beyond the wilde landscapes, you will be surprised by their variety and the numerous geological curiosities. You will also discover the shepherd's traditions and the historical richness. Far from the buoyant city life, we propose this tour of Southern Larzac on a marked path with a fully qualified guide or not.
The guide, if chosen, will bring you security, advice and will let you discover this lovable region. Within the wide areas of the plateau and the impressive sites, you will approach a protected environment, to discover the housing and even the menhirs and dolmens standing there since the first human presence. The variety of this tour will satisfy you and anybody will take pleasure in walking freely whatever the physical shape.

This tour was design thanks to the help of the Communauté de Communes du Lodévois-Larzac, of the CDRP de l'Hérault (Comité Départemental de la Randonnée Pédestre) and of the CPIE (Centre Permanent d'initiatives pour l'Environnement) of the Causses Méridionaux.
