Speleology climbing

The Gorges of the Dourbie and the Tarn are full of different climbing sites : for beginners, for experts and for professionals on walls from 20 to 200 meters well exposed and equipped with many paths of different levels.

The relief in Aveyron offers great underground surprises and justifies the qualificative that Edouard Alfred Martel, the father of speleology, had about Millau : “the capital of the Causses, canyons and caves”.

And to our delight, the Grands Causses region boasts over 2,000 caves ... and how many more are there to discover?

Via ferrata

Rocky courses equipped with ropes, rungs, rope bridges, and footbridges of aerial and even acrobatic nature.

Via ferrata is a new type of playful mountain activity which after a while has found its place between hiking and climbing.

Two nearby sites are ranked among the top ten via ferratas: Liaucous and Le Boffi (with 2 routes on each site, one easy and one very difficult).

The Soleilo is located at the bottom of the Liaucous via ferrata and offers you harnesses for rent.
Overlooking the Gorges of the Tarn and the Dourbie, these two via ferratas will give you maximum thrills, with wonderful views of the Causses of the Larzac, Méjean, the Black Causse, the villages below in the valley or Millau and its viaduct as a background.
In addition to the spectacular views, you can see the raptor’s flight, vultures and eagles, protected species and red-billed choughs rubbing elbows with you on the via cliffs and right above your heads!

Bungee jumping

Bungee jumping is both the most extreme and accessible sensational activity.

Fastness, anxiety, controle, proudness… the experience is striking.

If the unknown of the void seduces you, go beyond your limits and immerse yourself in the most intense, exciting, and unforgettable experience you have ever lived and you can ever imagine.

Jumps are supervised by professionals with hundreds of jumps to their credit.

The Gorges of the Tarn is a quality spot : the 107 is recognized in France and worldwide, just a little lower on the Alzon’s bridge or the Larzac’s Causse.

Have a try and good luck!

Canyoning

Since its emergence a few years ago, canyoning has found followers in Aveyron, which has become a popular area to practice this thrilling sport.
Take a deep breath and plunge into the narrow gorges of the Tarn, and make a detour to visit the wild rivers of the Dourbie and the South of Lozère. On the descent program:
Abseiling under waterfalls, natural slides, vertiginous jumps, aquatic walks, all in a wild environment with breathtaking landscapes, a change of scenery is guaranteed!

Free flight, paragliding and Hang-gliding

Paragliding, hang-gliding and parachuting are all disciplines in which the town of Millau has become a specialist, to the point of being recognized as the capital. So come and play with the law of gravity and fly over breathtaking landscapes among birds of prey.
Discover 3 high level sites of international renown : La Poncho d’Agast, Brunas, and le Puech d’Andan, or discover these disciplines for the first time.

VTT - Bicycle tourism

Close your mouse and grab the handlebars, this is going to be intense! On the Causses around Millau, there are hellish VTT descents in the undergrowth and you can go at full speed on the side of a hill. This is what awaits you!

The Rozier is the starting point of many hiking outings; some of them on the side of a cliff are among the most prestigious and spectacular in the country.
Possible welcome in the option Group vacation cottage at the Soleilo.

The land of the Gorges and the Causses is naturally suited to hiking, free or guided in a medium mountain. The Causses offer fantastic views from the heights of the cliffs overlooking the Tarn or the Jonte. The semi-troglodytic hamlets of Eglazines and Saint Marcellin are also waiting to be discovered. Hikes on the flatter parts of the plateau reveal enchanting and spectacular sites sculpted by the water. Around Mostuéjouls, there are many walks (from 3 to 7 hours) where you can appreciate the diversity of the landscape and understand the history of the country. You will be able to cross the Mejean Causse or the Middle Causse to discover hermitages and vultures. You can also walk in the Black Causse still covered by the pine forests that give it its color and its name.

For the lovers of long-distance hikes, the yellow and red signposted trails will take you around the Mejean Causse or the Sauveterre in 4 to 5 days.
The GR6 offers astonishing views of the western part of the Tarn Gorges.
The GR44 crosses the Sauveterre Causse from west to east to reach the Lozère mountain.
The GR60 follows the path of the old Aubrac Draille, an old transhumance route that crosses the Mejean and Sauveterre Causses from south to north.

Trail or nature running

Trail or nature running is a running sport over medium to long distances, in a natural environment, generally on dirt roads and hiking trails with technicity and gradient difference.
If you are more of a hiker, a dynamic runner in the hills, you dream of flying in the descents, contemplative or crazy for performance, the Millau Trail Space offers you different itineraries that will allow you to enjoy a truly varied training. You can exploit the richness of the terrain offered by the Great Causses with more than 270 km of marked and signposted trails (Larzac Causse, Black Causse and Sauveterre Causse). For an annual exercise in the fief of the Templars, a mythical run is organized in the area. The whole represents 14 circuits from 9 to 40 kilometers.
In the heart of the Great Causses Park, Mostuéjouls and Peyreleau benefit from an exceptional location. A paradise for climbers and hikers, these 2 hilltop villages are the privileged destination of trailers. 3 Causses are at the doors of these villages: the Black Causse, the Sauveterre and the Mejean, the Gorges of the Tarn and the Jonte’s. Peyreleau is the starting point of trails 10 and 11 and is located on the route of the Ultra, the 7, which is 53 kilometers long. In Mostuéjouls, there is track number 14, long of 13.2 kilometers. It is also the start of the “intégrale des Causses”, another ordeal of the Templars on 61 kilometers with 3500 meters of altitude. The Soleilo is the ideal place to stay for your accommodation for your training or one of your races.

Geocaching

Geocaching is a hobby hiking consisting in using the technology of geopositioning by satellite (GPS) to find or hide a container (called “cover” or “geocover”) in various places around the world and especially in Aveyron and Lozère near the Gorges of the Tarn and Mostuéjouls. A typical cover consists of a small waterproof container that can withstand its environment containing a visit register with one or more treasures, generally knick-knacks without value. Various geocovers are registered in our area, allowing you to discover spectacular landscapes while enjoying the Causses, the gorges, and the discovery of our beautiful villages.

Geocaching

VTT and electrical kick scooter hiking

In the South of Aveyron and Lozère, cross country or VTT hiking is practiced on various soils, between the Causses and the Gorges. There are many registered VTT tracks, including 11 around Millau. There are even some departures from the Soleilo in Mostuéjouls. These VTT routes, more or less technical and terraced, cross rich areas in natural, historical, and human heritage. They are of particular interest in terms of sport, culture, and landscape and are accessible alone, with the family, or with friends, whatever your level. We propose VTT hikes supervised by qualified monitors. To enjoy this fun and playful activity, you can also practice the electrical VTT and kick scooter that you can rent with SUN VTT CANOE.
