An exceptional natural site
You will admire this canyon formed over six million years by water flowing over rock. But be sure to respect the local feathered, furry and reptilian residents that remain very discreet, showing themselves only to the patient and non-intrusive.
At random during a hike, you may cross the path of a couple of Bonelli’s eagles out of the three pairs that live in the massif. You may also have the chance to see one of two pairs of Egyptian vultures or observe the night dance of one of the ten species of bats or maybe swim with the beavers that have inhabited these areas since time immemorial.
With 24 fish species, this is a place full of fauna in the water as well. A Regional Nature Reserve, UNESCO designated the Gorges du Gardon a World Biosphere Reserve in 2015.
