Between Gorges du Tarn and Grands Causses

La Malène is located in the Cévennes National Park, a Unesco World Heritage site.

In the heart of the classified site of the Gorges du Tarn and Grands Causses, you will discover the Tarn, a river with limpid waters flowing through a deep and spectacular limestone canyon with its most famous site : the Détroits.

The Tarn has its source on the Mont Lozère and as soon as it leaves this granite mountain range, the river approaches the plateau of the Grands Causses.

In this limestone area, it has carved out a canyon between Quézac and Le Rozier, which is 400 to 600 metres deep and 53 kilometres long.

Thus, you are permanently close to a rich, abundant and preserved flora and fauna.

In La Malène, a village located a few kilometres from Sainte Enimie "the heart of the Gorges du Tarn", come and do canoeing and kayaking in our department of Lozère, in the Occitanie region.

Canoeing is another way to relax while discovering the Gorges du Tarn, so you will enjoy many beaches accessible only by canoe...

With the rental of a canoe, kayak or paddle on the Tarn, you will be able to enjoy a moment of relaxation while discovering the Gorges du Tarn in a different way, with the proximity of nature and numerous beaches. Only canoes or kayaks will allow you this approach and do not deprive yourself of this emotion because it will be unforgettable.
