The Cévennes is one of the least populated, yet most spectacular, areas of Europe. In the mountains of southern France,a vast tableau of mountain ranges display Nature at her best. The tiny town of Florac is the central pivot. Here the Atlantic climate meets the Mediterranean, as three rivers plunge down from the schist and granite mountains and join to tumble their way through the spectacular limestone Tarn gorges.

Vultures vie with birds of prey as they circle a mile overhead, surveying the greatest abundance and diversity of flora and fauna in Europe. No other National Park has more to offer for variety of scenery and wildlife.
