Hikes and nature

The Rouergue is what we can call “la France profonde” although the infrastructure and the living standards have improved over the last twenty years. However, there are still places where time seems to be suspended and where nature is preserved. You can still hike and get temporarily lost. Little adventures like this make for great anecdotes such as the time when a farmer brought back clients, who where a little tipsy after an eau de vie tasting.
The villages are mostly on the plateaus that are separated by hundreds of rivers and streams forming many unexpected valleys.
