L’Ardéchoise 36 km - 2 days

Canoe tour from Sampzon (upstream from Vallon Pont d’Arc) to Sauze (Saint Martin d’Ardèche).

Extended version of “La Détente” with the first part of the descent characterized by flat water segmented by dams. You’ll use the canoe slides to pass them, thrills are guaranteed!.
After Vallon Pont d’Arc, the course merges with the 30 km trip and enters the canyon.
Overnight in a bivouac area in the heart of the canyon.
Paddle the route independently / no supplies available into the nature reserve.
For the bivouac choice we suggest you to book tickets in order to sleep in the first one (Gaud)
Booking your descent and booking the tickets to sleep in the bivouac are two different things. We can’t book the tickets for you.
We suggest you to contact nature reserve’s booking centre in advance: the number of places in each bivouac is limited, so make sure to book it in time.

Paddling time: 8 hours
Departure time: 9:30 a.m.
Return shuttle: between 4:00 and 5:00 p.m.
