HOLIDAY INFORMATION

The Gorge Getaway: CAMPING option includes the two-day GUIDED river trip with overnight camp through the spectacular Ardeche gorge. You have selected to include an additional 3 nights accommodation at our 4* CAMPSITE (see ‘The Campsite’ tab for details).

The river trip covers the full 32km of the Gorges de l’Ardeche from Vallon Pont d’Arc to Saint Martin d’Ardeche. It consists of two days of paddling with an overnight camp in the gorge (bivouac). This helps to divide the river trip into more equal and slightly less strenuous days (16km & 16km) and, therefore, gives us time to have lunch by the river, go for a swim, jump from rocks, explore hidden caves or just relax and enjoying your surroundings.

Camping equipment for the overnight bivouac camp (as part of the river trip) is included. You have selected to include this for the duration of your stay.

4 night option
14 – 18 June 2020
Suitable for all abilities
The minimum age for this option is 7 yrs old and everyone must be able to swim 25m

If you have any problems placing a booking, or would like to discuss your options further, please get in touch.

For group of over 8 people or if you would like to create a bespoke booking, please get in touch with your requirements.

Your Itinerary

You will go directly to the reception of the campsite where they will have your booking ready and will show you your pitch/es. A senior member of staff (usually the same person will also be your river guide) will meet you at the campsite to ensure you are happy with the arrangements and are ready for your river trip.

You can check in at the campsite anytime between 1pm and 8pm on your arrival day and will need to check out by 10:30am on the morning of your departure.

*The river trip covers the full 32km of the Gorges de l’Ardeche from Vallon Pont d’Arc to Saint Martin d’Ardeche. It consists of two days of paddling with an overnight camp in the gorge (bivouac) and includes 30 white-water rapids.

The Campsite

The campsite we use is perfectly located on the bank of the Ardeche river. A brief stroll from the centre of the local town – Vallon Pont d’Arc, and 6km from the famous Pont d’Arc, the campsite is ideally situated for exploring the Gorges de l’Ardèche and the local area.

All pitches are shaded and separated by hedges. They also have access to water points and electricity (extension cord may be necessary).

The campsite has a restaurant/bar; heated swimming pool; small shop and a large games area. Whilst it’s not possible to have BBQ’s on the campsite pitches, there is a large BBQ area available for guests, together with tables and seating.

This is a relaxed, family friendly, locally owned and independently run campsite, providing excellent facilities and the perfect riverside location.

Please note that, in France, no beach shorts are allowed in a public pool and you must wear ‘speedo’ style swimming trunks.
