Located in the Millau neighbourhood, Velorail du Larzac is a family entertainment activity nicely combining site seeing and relaxing. From you Comfortable pedal car, you will enjoy the view upon the green vallee du Cernon, including the Sainte Eulalie de Cernon templar city, along our "Orchidees" 8km course. Very little pedalling is needed, as our tourist train will climb it back for you. For more exercise, choose our "Papillons" 4 km course.

We visited this attraction on 27th August 2016 with our 9 and 10 year old children, on the last day of our family holiday. Despite it being a beautifully sunny and hot day, the ride didn't leave us all hot and bothered, having chosen the Les Orchidees circuit which includes a steam train ride back to the starting point.

We visited on a beautiful sunny day, which made the experience all the more pleasurable. There are three potential courses, we completed Les Orchidees, which takes around three hours, it consists of an 8 kilometre trip on the velorail - downhill all the way (top speeds, minimum effort!) and a return trip on the tourist train. The countryside is beautiful... More

We did the small trip with our young girls, the weather was beautiful, the bikes are easy to ride and you have plenty of time to complete the trail.... The kids laughed the whole way and thoroughly enjoyed themselves.... We were the only ones on the 11am departure which meant we didnt have to wait behind anyone... (heard that it... More

We did the Papillons route which is about 8km in total - 4km uphill and 4km downhill. It took about 1 hour in total which included stopping for photo's, snacks etc. We were the only people there so could go at our own pace and stop when we wanted to. You get great views down the valley and even though... More

We completed Les Orchidees this afternoon as a family (kids are 8 & 10) and had a delightful time. Lots of fun, completely different from anything we've done before. Wonderful views, tunnels, bridges, viaducts, trains - no need for anything else! Run by charming friendly funny people. Lovely picnic area, ice creams, plus crepes at the end of the line.... More

We have visited it for the third time now. Always took Les Orchidees route, around 8 km, mostly downhill, very easy to pedal. The route takes you over embankments, viaducts and through no less than four tunnels, all surrounded by beautiful forest and breathtaking views of the valley below. One drawback in high summer is the exposure to the sun... More

I visited this attraction with my parents (early eighties) and my husband and our 7 year old plus my sister and her 4 "kids" ranging from 11 to 21. We took the Papillon route which was a wise choice on a hot August afternoon. There was a lot of up hill cycling to start with and I have to confess... More

The velorail is little cars on a disused railway track with 2 exercise bikes that you have to pedal to make the train go - sounds like a lot of effort, but after about 1km the bikes are going downhill faster than you could ever hope to pedal and you just sit back, enjoy the view and hang on for...

We did the longer Les Orchidees route which is 8km down to the end station and they then bring you back on a small tourist train. You *must* book in advance which you can do easily on the website or by phone (which I hadn't realised so we booked in person for the next day). The station is just a... More
