From the granitic highlands of Mount Lozere to the majestic forests of the Aigoual, from the vast limestone plateaus of the Causse Méjean notched by the spectacular Tarn and Jonte gorges to the sharp ridges and deep valleys of the schistose Cévennes, the opportunities to marvel at the sumptuous landscapes are numerous!
Go and meet an exceptional fauna!
Deer, roe deer, mouflons, beavers, griffon and monk vultures, and bearded vultures have been reintroduced by the Park and live in large numbers on the territory. The otter, the black woodpecker, the Egyptian vulture or the Tengmalm’s owl have returned naturally.
The flora is rich and varied!
You may have the chance to observe rare, threatened or protected plants, such as the Venus hoof, the adonis or even the Balearic cyclamen, and others that can only be found in the Cevennes, such as the saxifrage or the Cevennes arabica.
The natural wealth of the Park is also based on the great variety of natural environments (peat bogs of Mount Lozere, cliffs of the Jonte or Tarn, steppe grasslands of the Méjean causse, moors of the Cevennes ridges, deciduous or coniferous forests…), on the generosity of springs and rivers, on the purity of the air, sky and water, or on a fascinating underground world…
Exceptional heritage !
How could you not fall under the spell of a magnificently preserved traditional architecture – dwelling houses, bridges, turreted bell towers, fountains or other mills – and the multitude of isolated farms or tiny hamlets nestled in the vegetation!
