The Gorges du Tarn is a canyon formed by the Tarn River, located to the north of Millau, in southern France. The gorges are traversed by the D907bis road.
D907bis is asphalted. Avalanches and landslides can occur anytime and can sometimes block some sections of the road. The road is located at the valleyfloor of the valley of the Tarn. This offers you spectacular views inside the canyon. The road lets yourself to be transported by kilometres of meanders which reveal a succession of rocky cirques and chaos. Many castles have been built along the Gorges, most of them dating back to the Middle-Age. Following the course of the Tarn River for 50 kilometres, the Tarn Gorges are among the deepest gorges to be found anywhere in Europe. They are also extremely picturesque - perhaps one of the most scenic parts of France - and offer several great vantage points. Characterised by steep cliffs slicing through sparkling blue-green water, the gorges are one of the Cévennes’ most scenic sights, but the riverside road is notorious for summer traffic jams. This scenic road follows alongside the gorge and it has lots of stopping places, although not always in quite the place that you want to stop!
