Family activity, from 7 years on

There are two conditions to be met to descent the Ardèche: being at least 7 years old and know how to swim. You can chose a canoe (2 persons) or a kayak (1 person). On the route there are several rapids.

A trip for everybody

There are several tours: a tour of 24km or one of 32km in one or two days. The departure is at the campsite where a bus takes you to Vallon-Pont-d'Arc and you start your downstream tour untill the pier of de Sauze... in front of the campsite!
