A long tiring day, but wonderful scenery and a great experience. We did the 24km decent, which they advertise as 3 1/2 hours of paddling. However, in early September when the water is low, it is more like 6 hours of paddling!!!!!More

Family of four, with two children aged 7 and 9 - we booked the two days experience (13km and 24km). All went smoothly. Friendly and helpful staff throughout, very enjoyable couple of days. Also helpful for last-minute advice over email. Highly recommended! Laura&Gavin

It was a real pleasure to welcome you to our canoe base.
Looking forward to finding you on the Ardèche,
We went for a 8km trip down the stream and encountered some rapids and some rocks to avoid. For a beginner this is a very exiting journey down the river. We've stopped and rested at the Pont d'arc for a lunch with a nice view....More

We had a great experience with Aique Vive. I think all of the companies provide roughly the same experience (different distances on the river), but we spoke to a few companies and felt really at ease with them. They were friendly, informative, and no pressure...More

We booked a two-day kayakking trip down the Ardeche at Ague vive. They were a bit pushy selling this trip, even before explaining all the practical arrangements. We received one kayak for two people with two tons to put our tent and stuff in. The...More

The staff spoke good English, took time...More
We hired 2 double canoes from these guys, and did the mini maxi tour down the Ardeche to just past Pont d'Arc, was a lovely trip down some cool slides too. The guys arrived on time, drove us back to our campsite and were very...More
Booked online under name of Oceanide which was a bit confusing as you actually need to turn up at Aigue Vive place, good job my husband had read something online about them being the same company. However, once we arrived everything was well organised, our...More
