Professional and fun instructors
All our activities are suitable for children aged seven and up and are instructed and guided by our fully UK qualified team. Each year we employ passionate and professional instructors who have the right balance of maturity and fun to make your stay as safe and enjoyable as possible. We also hold the LOTC Adventure Mark.
No experience necessary
All our activities as all skills are taught on site. For us, it's not about pushing you out of your comfort zones, but encouraging you to share the challenges of the activities as a family in an environment that is exhilarating, safe and fun!
2-day river decent and sleeping under the stars!
The main activity of the week is a canoe descent of the magnificent Ardeche River. We do this over two days, with our river team taking care of you all the way, guiding you through the rapids and keeping you entertained with games and tales of the area. One night is spent sleeping under the stars at the Bivouac site deep in the middle of the gorge. Hot chocolate and star gazing, and if you’re lucky enough – a visit from the local boar! An incredible night of adventure for all.
No other company does it with quite the same attention to detail as we do. With over twenty years’ experience working in the Ardeche, we have a vast knowledge of what makes a comfortable descent, so we'll supply you with tents and hammocks, a fantastic barbecue as well as coffee and pancakes for breakfast!

As well as the 2-day river descent we offer a day at a high ropes course up in the pine forests of Villefort, plus another day climbing and abseiling in the limestone cliffs of the Chassezac gorge and weaseling. To make sure you get to see as much of the beautiful scenery as possible, each day ends on a different scenic beach. A great way to relax and for the kids to play after a great days adventure.
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 the week's activities!
