We did the small trip (8 km), 4 adults and 4 children (age 7-12). The staff was very friendly, the equipment was a bit worn (hence the four Stars and not five). The trip down the Ardeche River itself should receive 6 Big Stars!

We were pretty much ignored when we went to enquire about hiring. Only when we walked away did the staff stop their conversation and ask if we wanted something. The bus to take us to the start was 1 hour late. When it arrived a...More

The Pont d' Arc is a lovely natural bridge. It is well worth the drive to see it from an overlook (you will likely spend 10-15 minutes enjoying the view). Plus there are many other sights on the way. When we visited in June, the...More

Beautiful and impressive. Go there early in the morning to enjoy the beauty and the silence. Go there in the afternoon to enjoy sun bathing and a jump in the river.
