The truly incredible Ardèche Gorge offers you an unforgettable journey. First, you kayak under the Pont d’Arc, a natural geological phenomenon 54 metres high and 60 metres in length carved out by the Ardèche River. Over time the limestone plateau was pierced by water forging and forcing its way through the rock face leaving in its wake a stone arch suspended high above the river. A natural entry point into the Ardèche Gorge, it is a must on any trip down the river.

Next, you enter into the natural reserve and its unique geological formations sculpted by the river over thousands of years. This has resulted in a gorge perfectly adapted to the pursuit of all white water sports

Your route will meander alongside sandy beaches and through a changing canvas of spellbinding landscapes. The beaches on the banks of the Ardèche River provide a welcome stop to picnic, take a break in the sun, swim, jump or dive off rocks or just relax and soak in the views.

Upon your arrival at Sauze a shuttle will take you back to your starting point.
