The Park's richness is based on the variety of natural environments that shelter a large number of species: perhaps you will have the chance to observe rare plants such as the Venus hoof, to watch a griffon vulture take flight or to cross the path of a beaver ? Beautiful discoveries await you: the traces of a thousand-year-old history are visible through the megaliths, medieval castles, high Camisards places...
The Park territory has several unique natural sites. The gorges of the Tarn and Jonte; caves such as Aven Armand, Dargilan and Bramabiau, chaos, such as Nîmes-le-Vieux and the Bois de Païolive or the Bondons site.
Crossed by all kinds of hiking routes whether they are hiking, horseback riding, cycling or even cross-country skiing, the Cévennes National Park offers more than 300 family walks, the opportunity to choose the walk that will perfectly suit your profile.
Throughout your trip in the heart of the park, you will also be able to discover a large number of interpretation trails, museums and historical sites that are part of the Cévennes heritage and the living environment of its inhabitants.
