we done a two day kayaking trip down the Ardeche with "Experience Ardeche" Once you pass the day trippers on the Kayaks you hardly meet another soul as there are few roads which actually get you into the Gorges.

Very scenic drive, though was busy and is apparently more so mid summer. Stunning view at Pont d'Arc and would be a superb canoe trip down th Ardeche

Again visited this area, camping, canoeing, the things to do here. Although the view points are great, canoe down the river to really experience the beauty of the beast. The Arch, the sheer clifs, it is all so worth while. Try to avoid the holiday season, it is very busy here then.

Absolutely stunning drive through the gorge, with numerous belvederes along the way. Undoubtedly the car park and view points at Pont dArc were the busiest but in September it wasn't difficult to park up and take in the view. Overall, a real must if you are a lover of beautiful scenery.

This is a great drive to take but be prepared for crowds. Lots of great places to stop and shoot pix and some of the scenery is gorgeous. Worth seeking out. Cheers!

I booked the 2 day kayaking descent of the Ardeche with The Outdoor Experience after reading the trip advisor reviews. It was a surprise for my husbands birthday and although he and our teenage son have kayaking experience I didn't have any. Paddy responded promptly to my emails, reassured me that I would be able to do everything and sent... More

We ( family of 4 with two boys age 9 and 13) spent a week on the Mondial Campsite just outside Vallon Pont d'Arc from which we explored the area of the Ardeche. The Gorge is amazing and the surrounding countryside beatufiul. The highlight of the week was a two day 34km descent of the river that was organised and... More
