The Aubrac plateau
The Aubrac plateau, classified as a Regional Natural Park since February 2018, straddles the departments of Lozère, Aveyron and Cantal. The plateau is crossed by long-distance hiking trails such as the Saint-Guilhem le Désert, the Santiago of Compostela or the Tour des Monts d'Aubrac hiking trails, as well as a multitude of short ones. This natural region is renowned for its unique landscapes, its preserved heritage as well as its terroir and traditions.
The Aubrac’s wide open spaces and exceptional nature
At the bends of paths and rivers, admire a remarkable natural heritage. Land of water and granite, the rock merges with lakes and waterfalls to give a sense of mystery to the landscapes. Discover the panoramas and natural sites of this exceptional land, and admire as far as the eye can see the vast grassy expanses where herds of Aubrac cows graze. In the heart of these protected spaces, recharge your batteries by breathing the highland’s pure air. Witness an explosion of colors in spring, thanks to the rebirth of daffodils, broom and other flowers after the long white winter. Meet the animals inhabiting these lands, and hopefully you may cross paths with the stag bellowing at dusk in the autumn nights.
