PLEASE NOTE: The tour dates are slightly different to those in the December Cycle. Follow the River Lot, meandering through vineyards and cutting its way through limestone plateaux almost to its source in the Cevennes. Return following the Tarn, first as a mountain stream then through dramatic gorges and finally as a broad river on its way to join the Garonne.
