Overview

Visit the Gorges du Tarn with a boatman for a guided tour of a natural site. It's a bit like an exhibition or a museum in the sun where a rare moment in an exceptional setting can be shared. In the most beautiful part of Gorges du Tarn, in the village of La Malene, the boatmen offer an 8-kilometre ride lasting around an hour, from April to October.

We were so lucky to find this place. The setting was picturesque, the owners were helpful and kind, and the hotel was perfect. Loved it. Recommend to all - families with kids and anyone going to gorge!

Relaxing boat tour admiring the beautiful gorge. You'll pass one very small village on the route. Price of 22euro per person includes shuttle back. Takes just over an hour to complete.

A great way to see the beautiful Tarn gorge if you don't want to canoe. A quiet boat holding only about eight meanders slowly down the Tarn so you can see the natural beauty. They drive you back to La Malene in a van. Nice...More
