HOLIDAY INFORMATION

This option includes the two-day GUIDED river trip with overnight bivouac camp. It is perfect for people who have arranged their own accommodation in the area.

Our guided river trip covers the full 32km of the Gorges de l’Ardeche from Vallon Pont d’Arc – Saint Martin d’Ardeche. It consists of two days of paddling (approx. 16km each day) with an overnight camp in the heart of the Gorge itself. We always recommend doing the trip over two days as this allows you enough time to fully appreciate the beautiful surroundings; it also gives us time to go for a swim, jump from rocks, explore hidden caves or just relax with a picnic, soaking in the breathtaking scenery.

Most guided river trips run on Monday/Tuesday and Thursday/Friday to provide you with the best experience possible (i.e. we try to avoid weekend trips as this is when the river tends to be at its busiest. However, we do have a couple of weekend trips that run in April and September when the river is much quieter.

1 night / 2 day option
