Overview

Get on board and discover the valley of the Tarn from the river as you would have imagined ... All along the river, your guide tell you the history of the country, its traditions and curiosities, its geology, fauna and flora. The boat trip starts in Creissels, a small medieval village of character near Millau. Your boatman takes you on an 9km adventure full of surprises! A beaver hut, a gray heron flight, shivering rapids, and you are under the two highest pillars in the world for a breathtaking and exclusive view of the Millau Viaduct. At the end of the tour, you sail to the troglodyte village of Peyre drawn in the rock, to admire all the charm of this classified site. 1h30 round trip (return by minibus) - boats of 6 passengers seated maximum with 1 guide. On your return, enjoy our relaxation area at the water’s edge : the "Canoe Cafe" proposes food and drink all day, shaded tables and deck chairs, and activities for everyone (walk of the cascades, Horse-drawn carriage, swimming, slackline, stand-up paddle & canoeing).

The Viaduct is worth a visit, it is truly impressive. A 20 minute free film at the visitors center will give you all the facts about the building of the Viaduct.
