Canoeing - kayaking
The Ardèche, famous throughout the world, attracts crowds in the spring. Already in April, as soon as the mercury tickles the summer temperatures, it welcomes kayak lovers. The Ardèche has the well-deserved reputation of being the most beautiful river in Europe. The Pont D’Arc, a geological sensation, and the impressive gorges are fascinating playgrounds for canoeists. In early summer, when the fruit trees are shining in the sun, the tributaries such as the Beaume and the Chassezac are also passable. We offer one-day and half-day canoe tours. Unique of its kind, the 2-day trip through the Ardeche gorges starts from Vallon Pont d’Arc and passes, after 6 km rowing, under the Pont d’Arc, an imposing natural arch of 60 m wide.
Welcome to the Eldorado of canyoning! Evolve between narrow gorges and waterfalls and dare to jump from steep cliffs! Adventure in the heart of nature by following the waterways.
The Ardèche is also a paradise for equestrian activities. There are many rides on the program, from an hour-long evening outing to day-long rides. Donkey rides are also available.
The numerous caves of the Ardèche were formed more than two million years ago. More than a hundred are listed and several of them are open to the public and offer the youngest sensational descents into the earth. This is where the roots of humanity lie. Let your imagination run wild and meet the first humans who lived here 33,000 years ago and created the magnificent cave paintings that are now world famous in the Chauvet cave. The Caverne du Pont d’Arc and the Aven d’Orgnac are also famous worldwide.
