Lozère, the least populated department in France, is a treasure trove of natural wonders and cultural heritage. With over 550,000 hectares of pristine countryside, it offers a diverse range of landscapes, from the granite expanses of the Margeride to the limestone Causses, and from the rugged Gorges du Tarn to the serene Cévennes.

Natural Reserves and Wildlife

The Gevaudan Park near Marvejols is home to 100 semi-wild wolves, while La Margeride boasts a 200-hectare bison park. Florac, the headquarters of the Cévennes National Park, is a biodiversity hotspot with over 1,656 unique species of flora and a wide array of fauna.

Flora and Gastronomy

The region's rich biodiversity is not just limited to wildlife; it also extends to flora. The Cévennes National Park in Florac is home to a 17th-century château and offers a diverse range of plant species. The sheep farming on the Causses' vast plateaux contributes to the production of the renowned Rocquefort cheese.

Subterranean Wonders

L'Aven Armande in the Causse Méjean features a funicular railway that takes you 50 metres underground to a cave large enough to house Notre Dame Cathedral, adorned with over 400 stalagmites. The 'Grotte de Dargilan' is another must-visit, being the largest cave in the Causses.

Outdoor Activities

The Gorges du Tarn offer over 80 km of rugged beauty, with boat trips available from La Malene. Nearby, the Jonte Gorges provide a wilder experience. Mende, the administrative and rugby capital, offers a range of activities from Nordic skiing on Mount Lozère in winter to trout fishing in the Barandon Lake and the Tarn River in summer.

Architectural and Historical Sites

Mende is known for its Gothic cathedral, 13th-century synagogue, and Penitents' Tower. The region also features the fortified village of La Garde Guérin with its 12th-century church, and St-Laurent-de-Trèves, a site rich in dinosaur fossils. The old wool mill at Langogne and Les Bondons, which has the second-largest site of menhirs in Europe, add to the area's historical allure.


The nearest airport to Lozère is the Clermont-Ferrand Auvergne Airport, which is approximately a 2.5-hour drive away. The department is also well-connected by road, making it easily accessible for those looking to explore its natural and cultural offerings.

Literary Heritage

The route taken by Robert Louis Stevenson on his donkey journey from Le Puy-en-Velay to St. Jean du Gard is immortalised in various parts of the region, adding a literary touch to its rich tapestry.
