Ardeche

Trip Summary

The Gorges de l'Ardeche are in the Ardeche department of the Rhone-Alpes. The gorges runs about 40 kilometres eastwards from Pont d'Arc (itself a few kilometres east of the popular resort of Vallon Pont d'Arc).

One of the most stunning scenic highlights of France, they are usually accessed from the town of Vallon Pont d'Arc at the upper (north-west) end of the gorges.

Perhaps the best way to explore the Ardeche gorges, and to get a real sense of their grandeur and beauty, is by descending in canoe from Vallon Pont d'Arc to Saint-Martin d'Ardeche - about 35 kilometres, with cliffs either side up to 300 metres in height.
