Peat Bogs are fragile and remote places of loneliness. These ones are located in the Millevaches National Parc, near the center of France. Many important rivers have their invisible source there, like the Vezere and the Vienne as shown on the gallery. Thaurion river has rapids, known as the devil's gully. There is a very large peat bog up there, just an hour walking in silence in the nature. Soothing, preserved places. Few tourists.
