Hiking in a National Park
Bite into a world of sensations!
In the heart of a natural environment...
The astonishing diversity of landscapes: Cévennes, Causses, Mont-Lozère... has also been shaped by the work of generations of breeders and farmers. To ensure that fields remain fields and that the moors aren't transformed into forests and that paths remain open, it is vital to maintain agricultural and pastoral activities. This is one of the National Park's key challenges.
In the 19th century the territory was home to a dense animal population. A significant proportion of the fauna had been eliminated. Today, forests are reclaiming the land and the vast stretches of moor and heath lands provide a favourable habitat for boar, deer, mouflons... Vultures have returned to the Tarn and Jonte gorges and beavers have taken up residence again in the rivers. They too form part of the region's natural heritage.
