1 Hiking
The Lozère offers unlimited possibilities for hiking. Dozens of well-described and mostly also signposted hiking routes criss-cross our department. The descriptions and topographical carts of all these routes are available. There are hikes in all categories, from easy going, to very difficult and also differing in length. Of course you should not forget that the Lozère is a mountainous area and therefore you will (in varying degrees) experience differences in altitude.

individual hiking holiday solo or in group  : cevennes-mont-lozere.com./hiking.htm
accomp. hiking ( min 6p.) and qi gong (Fr.)cevennes-mont-lozere.com./randonnee-accompagnee.htm
Bars and  restaurants are scarce on these routes, so you have to carry drinks and food with you.
Good equipment is necessary; we can advice you if required.
Our home is on the path of several long distance walks (GR's), such as : GR 70, GR 68 and GR 7A - the famous Stevenson Track.
This last one is the route covered by the Scottish writer  Robert Louis Stevenson at the end of the 19th century. He was accompanied by Modestine, his donkey, which carried his luggage.
The original route as followed by Stevenson has been signposted and it is possible to rent donkeys. Inquiries Donkey rent : http://anegenti.free.fr
This way of hiking is ideal for groups with children. We can host donkeys in our meadows.  

We offer you the possibility of helping you plan and organise your walk(s), especially with regard to luggage transport and taking you to or collecting you from various starting points,
Booking other sleeping places (important because the planning of your hikes will be influenced by distance, degree of difficulty and availability of sleeping places.
It is also possible to combine hikes and trips by car from our home, the possibilities are countless.

There is a large variety in possibilities to spend the night. There are Bed & Breakfast, which generally provide comfortable rooms in a homely ambiance, sometimes with the possibility of having dinner in the evening with the host(s), hotels and also Gîtes d'Etape's (e.g etoile.fr.). The latter ones often have dormitories and are less comfortable than Bed & Breakfast. They are often cheaper.
   For more information on hiking in the Lozère you can also visit the following websites:
www.chamina.com  www.chemin-stevenson.org 

Apart from long and short hikes, you can also enjoy theme walks with experienced mountain guides. Examples: flora, fauna recognising and use of mushrooms ,
Recognising of wild plants with Claude Rocher of Loz'air .geology, "aquarando" (hikes trough rivers and brooklets) easier and not to be compared with canyoning. 

Furthermore there are evening walks with instruction in astronomy and walks combined with instruction in the use of compass and reading maps. A combination of the various types of walks is also possible.
2 Trips combinig regional products/farmers and heritage

You will be amazed about the enormous variety and high quality of what our local producers/farmers propose : a great variety of cow, sheep and goat cheeses, all kinds of honeys, traditional cold meats, trouts etc. 

The farmers-producers will be delighted to show you around and in most cases, you can sample before an eventual purchase. The beautiful scenery as well as old churches, traditional farmhouses and other witnesses of a rich heritage along the road make these trips unforgettable !

3 Canyoning

For the more athletic ones, there are numerous possibilities for canyoning. This sport can be exercised under guidance and can thus be practised by almost anybody without a physical handicap. 

You can also choose for a course in canyoning of several days. This is best done in small groups of 6 to 8 people and can be done from April till the end of October.

We can offer your lodging, lunch picnic and dinner. The equipment needed for these training stages is provided by the guide. During the course you will visit various canyons. 

At the end of the training stage you will be able to practise canyoning independently.
We will gladly and free of charge help you with bookings. For more information on canyoning :

4 (Trout) fishing

The many mountain rivers are ideal for trout fishing .We have for you documentation on suitable rivers and also practical advise concerning techniques and rules.

Trout fishing can be practised in many rivers within a short distance. The Lot at 100 meters from La Combette, the Allier at 5 kms, the Tarn at 25 kms etc..  

In the numerous lakes you can also catch other fish apart from trout. Because of the high altitude and the water temperature, the fish are not too big (in the rivers) For trout fishers, the Lozère is a real paradise. 

Near La Combette, 900 trout were counted during the last inventory (October 2002), over a distance of 100 meters.

Permits (from 1 day, 2 weeks or the whole season) are available locally.
