Ardèche White Water Adventure

Our Ardèche Family Adventure Holiday is set against the backdrop of the spectacular Ardèche gorge ('the Grand Canyon of Europe'), where we provide the ultimate in white-water canoeing and outdoor pursuit’s adventure for the family.

The main highlight of any Ardèche adventure is likely to be the exciting descent down the spectacular Ardèche gorge. For this 2 day trip, we provide the instructors to accompany you, all the equipment required for you and your family together with all the food for the overnight bivouac and barbecue. Our instructor team will make the river descent as exciting as possible yet fun and safe, taking in the various rapids and the famous Pont Arc. By the end of this dramatic trip, your canoe skills and confidence will have improved no end!

Our adventure holiday also includes climbing and high ropes.  We encourage your family to share new experiences and learn together.  No experience is necessary for any of our activities and you can make your holiday as relaxing or as active as you like.

There is much more to this region other than the gorge and the river, there is an abundance of town markets and rich history to be found all over the Ardèche.

What makes our Ardèche White Water Adventure so special

The outdoor pursuits programme includes Climbing and abseiling in the the Chassezac Gorge and local crags on a site that has been especially developed by our team. There is also the high ropes course in Villefort which is beautiful as well as high octane fun and which has the latest in failsafe safety systems. There is also Weaselling (you might want to google that!), which is great fun for the whole family and which takes place near our climb site. On the last day we relax with a chilled day at the show cave at Avenorgnac which is the perfect way to wind down after your great adventure week. In fact we wind down every single day on a different beach and everyone absolutely loves that and it’s a great way to relax and for the kids to play after a great days adventure.
