    Do you long to be in the beauty of nature and also have the opportunity to step back in time to the Jurassic period!

    The Tournemire amphitheatre situated between the Roquefort caves and the Templar and Hospitaller sites is an outstanding geological area. At its entrance, a 180 million-year-old complete skeleton of an exceptional marine dinosaur, the Occitanosaurus tournemirensis was discovered fossilized in the “grey clay soils.” A copy of the original skeleton is exhibited in the House of Plesiosaur located in the heart of the village.

    Rider apprentices

    Rider apprentices

    The Vispens farm welcomes you to experience a day or a long stay in interaction with horses.

    Although sheep breeding is the emblematic activity of the area, horse farms are also to be found within the Grands Causses Regional Natural Park. The Vispens equestrian farm is located in an outstanding setting close to St-Affrique and offers a whole range of equestrian activities.

    From horse riding along the trails of the Vispens Causse to multi-day horseback trips with nights spent bivouacking or in a gite, several options are available depending on your experience and wishes.

    These trips and riding experiences may stimulate the desire of apprentices to work in equestrian related activities.

    Do you fancy tasting some Roquefort cheese ?

    Do you fancy tasting some Roquefort cheese ?

    Come and tickle your taste buds and enjoy the great Roquefort experience!

    This is the perfect time to come and visit the maturing caves whilst the new cheeses are ripening. It is the darkness of the caves that causes the Penicillium roqueforti fungus to develop successfully into its unique flavours. The whole maturation process involves a slow refinement from January to late June. After a 90-day period, including a minimum of 14 days of ripening in the caves, the Roquefort loafes reach a perfect state of maturation so that you can savor them at their optimum.

    After your visit to the caves, come and enjoy the tasting session where you can explore the nuances of the different flavors of the whole range of Roquefort.

    Seven Roquefort manufacturers welcome you to share their passion. You can find out all the information to plan your visit here.

    Make your stay an unforgettable gourmet trip during which you can explore cheeses of the Aveyron. The internet blogger Itinera Magica shares her experience about two emblematic cheeses: Roquefort and Laguiole.

    So if you are a gourmet enthusiast and love local food pay also a visit to the blog “déguster l’Aveyron” (savour Aveyron produce) and find out about the sharing of experience of Aveyron gastronomy. Enjoy reading this blog and we look forward to seeing you soon in Roquefort!

    A sporting gourmet Sunday

    A sporting gourmet Sunday

    On Sunday the 25th of March come and join Roquefort la Gourmande and the Roq'Famille, two events which are arranged jointly by Roc et Canyon, the organizer of outdoor activities and the village of Roquefort. These events are held on the same day to fulfill all your desires!

    Feel like sharing a convivial time with your family? Roc et Canyon has prepared a programme with a wide variety of activities for you, during which the bravest can slide down a zip-line, the Robin Hood fans try their skills at archery, and where even the youngest will have the possibility to climb a hanging net… a fun time with lots of laughs, in perspective!

    In the morning, Roquefort la Gourmande offers all hiking enthusiasts the opportunity to take part in a Nordic walk, or the more sporty can take part in a Trail run, depending on how experienced you are. This is the opportunity to explore the new “sentier des échelles” (ladder path) at your own pace.  The new Ladder Path will be unveiled for the first time on this special occasion. For the time being, the route remains shrouded in secrecy. To whet your adventurous spirit, we can only tell you that this new path will enable you to walk across the entire Combalou Plateau, to get closer to cliffs and screes and to enjoy wonderful scenic views. The most curious will have to wait until March 25th!
