The 6 km ‘mini descent’ takes you under the Pont d’Arc, and on the ‘long descent’, you’ll be exploring the entire length of the gorges.
Or you could choose the 11 km descent from Lanas and 8 km from Balazuc, stop off and explore this magnificent village on the way.


Swim down a river and whizz down the natural slides that the river has shaped into the limestone rock, then when you reach the superb, quiet areas, you can climb up the rocks and jump into the water.

An original way to explore the canyon from the top of the river, an unforgettable experience!
A State-qualified instructor will guide you all the way.

The Ardèche river is heaven-on-earth for fans of fishing and there are plenty of great spots where you can catch predatory species such as large perch and a few pike, and other popular species such as river herring, eel, pike-perch and carp. This area is also adapted to beginners who can practice their skills by trying to catch white fish.

The Ardèche is a great river for fishing because all the waters of the Cévennes Ardéchoises and some of the waters from the upper Loire river flow into it.
