Paddy and Ted were fantastic, we booked in exceedingly last minute and were thoroughly looked after from start to finish. The guys are great fun but equally we felt in safe hands. I had kayaked this river 15 years ago with school but Ted really...More

We love the Gorges especially kayaking down them and camping. The scenery is stunning and unlike anywhere else.

Great place to get wet, or ride in a canoe. It can get shallow in some place but still a nice relaxing ride down the river.

There is a parking area, seemed to be free which is unusual, and a short walk to a lovely riverside beach, with spectacular views of the Pont d'arc. The water seemed to be clean, and wasn't flowing fast, so it was a lovely place for...More

We had a great time here! Park just across the street and walk 2 minutes past vineyards to the sand beach & river. The arc itself is just stunning, and my young children had a lovely time splashing and swimming in the water. Beach was...More

We drove on the upper road along the edge of the gorge and there were several pullouts with views of the gorge and river below. It's an amazing place and you can see a lot from the road.

How can I describe the fun that we have just had canoeing the Ardeche with the Outdoor Experience? Paddy, Ted and Adam were all superb and nothing was too much trouble, even down to opening their season early to accommodate us. My wife and I,...More

Nothing like in photos. You have to be here in person to see this spectacular arched rock. Also the surrounding massive mountains of Ardeche and appreciate this incredible gorge.

The arch a little overrated, and in early May the weather is a little hit or miss. Prob the best thing to do is a canoe trip (22€ for 8kms), and get a good hit of the area. Parking opposite is convenient.

We visited the gorges of Ardèche over Easter and we found it really spectacular. The views are amazing, there are lovely walks to do, and there are even a few beaches. The river is popular for kayaking, and a few brave souls were swimming. The...More

This area looks very commercial, unlike gorge du tarn, and the kayaking looks a little challenging. If there is a choice between this and Verdon gorge, which would be more desirable for hiking and beauty and a small town to stay for a couple of days.
