A preserved natural site

Proud and wild, the valley is never as beautiful than in autumn, when the symphony of colours spread to the wooded slopes and reveal the extraordinary diversity of essences. Throughout its course, from river bend to river bend, from south-facing slopes to north-facing ones, all the climatic influences succeeding one another, mixing with each other, are building here, an exceptional biotope.

Sensitive Natural Spaces (ENS)

To illustrate the richness of the valley two discovery circuits have been created near the ENS located in Thuriès (Pampelonne) and Infournats (Jouqueviel).

The gorges of Flauzins

Between Tanus and Saint Martin Laguépie, the Viaur valley becomes more steep and winding. This offers magnificent panoramas including the Flauzins Gorges.
