HOLIDAY INFORMATION

The Gorge Getaway: YURT option includes the two-day GUIDED river trip with overnight camp through the spectacular Ardeche gorge. It also includes an additional 1-5 nights accommodation at the YURT campsite (see ‘The Yurt site’ 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.

Most guided river trips are on Mon/Tues and Thurs/Fri each week with a couple of Sat/Sun options in April. You can confirm availability and the days the river trip will run before sending your enquiry by looking at the Guided river trip option. If you require different dates for the river trip please use the link below to send us your bespoke request.

2 – 6 night option
Available April – September
Suitable for all abilities
Restricted to minimum 3 nights accommodation during July and August.
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

The itinerary for the Gorge Getaway: YURT option will vary depending on your dates selected and the number of nights you decide to stay.

If you select to arrive before the river trip (eg arrive on Wednesday with the river trip on Thurs/Fri) then you will go directly to the reception of the Yurt campsite where they will have your booking ready and will show you your accommodation. A senior member of staff (usually the same person will also be your river guide) will meet you at the Yurt site to ensure you are happy with the arrangements and are ready for your river trip.

If you only add nights at the campsite after the river trip then we will meet you directly at the river trip start location at 10:30am.

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 Yurt Site

The yurt site is situated half-way down the river and on the edge of the Ardeche gorge. A great ‘back to nature’ experience which has a private track that leads you directly down to the waters edge.

This is a relaxed, family friendly, locally owned and independently run campsite, providing unusual accommodation in a great location. We recommend you have transport with this option.

There are a few romantic 2 person yurts, a few family yurts (2-4 people), a couple of tents on stilts (2-4 people), and some safari lodges (2-6 people).

Vallon-Pont-d’Arc is only a 15 min drive away where you will find an array of restaurants, shops and cafes at your disposal.

Option to include Breakfast or book your accommodation only
Restricted to minimum 3 nights accommodation during July and August
