We spent a fantastic fortnight camping in the Ardeche, but must rave in particular about the team at Outdoor Experience. We booked the two day canoeing trip, with hammock overnight bivouac and a climbing day. As a family of four (M&D, bys 9 & 12) with mixed levels of confidence with such things, we weren't sure how the activities would... More

This is a fantastic part of the world to enjoy fresh air, great views and some good quality calorie burning! The 3 of us (Wife, 9yr old daughter and I) had a 5 day trip organised by The Outdoor Experience and loved every day. Patrick and his team were very friendly, helpful and dedicated to make sure we had a... More

Amazing to see from both the canoe at river level, and also along the road between Vallon Pont-d'Arc and Sauze. Views of the cliffs and the amazing panoramas with plenty of stopoffs on the cliff road allow for photos... the further you get from Vallon, the quieter the roads... afternoons around the Pont-d'Arc are busy in peak season the road.

Breathtaking views! Freshest air! Warmest water! A bit crowded in summer, but it does not spoil the atmosphere. Been here before, will come again!

32 kilometre kayak trip from the Castels L'Ardechois campsite, through the Ardeche gorge. Can take up to 8 hours. Pick up from car park at Sauze. Trip can be exciting/scary depending on water level, be honest with the organisers as to your ability and experience as the trip is unaccompanied. Other companies can provide a guide. Distances available from 7... More

I am a coach driver who has had the nerve wracking exprience of driving a coach load of passengers to the top of the gorge. My knees knocked!I ain't kidding! when driving a British coach on a narrow road,and the front of the coach is over the edge of the precipice,it definately concentrates the mind ! But don't mind me---lf... More

Wonderful scenery visible from the road along the Gorges de l'Ardeche. Many hotels and restaurants (I particularly recommend Le Belvedere near the Pont d'Arc either to stay or to eat), campsites and canoe operators. The natural bridge, the Pont d'Arc, over the river must be seen, but the area immediately around it gets very crowded with bathers and sunbathers

Excellent scenary and great weather, great for family holidays with swimming/beaches by the river and canoeing and kayaking tours available, which you can just book when you get there, anything from 8Km to 60Km. Good riverside campsites as well. Only downside is it is very very busy in peak season!
