We did the lower gorge section first in the morning so you cycle first and get the train back. This was our favourite route as the gorge scenery is much more dramatic than the upper part and it seems more hidden. On the upper part...More

We booked well ahead for this (in March) and being British we booked for 8 o'clock before it got too hot. We got to Boucieu Le Roi well on time and were first through the ticket office. We didn't realise at first how fortuitous this...More

We visited on a very chilly May morning but this was a unique experience and we thoroughly enjoyed it. You travel in a "car" for 4 people and the 2 in front have to pedal. It's mainly downhill and there is a chance to change...More
