Gorges de l'Ardèche


For about thirty kilometres, the course of the Ardèche river is enclosed between limestone cliffs rising up to more than 300 meters.

Starting from Vallon-Pont-d'Arc, you follow the meanders of the river with, as a first reward, this natural monument which is the Pont d'Arc: an imposing arch which is part of the tourist wealth of the region.
The road then climbs up to a plateau where you can make stops to enjoy great views of the canyon from lookouts.

The surrounding area is ideal for hiking, allowing you to discover a diverse fauna and flora, as well as geological sites such as caves and caverns.

Note that the waters of the Ardèche are popular with white water sports enthusiasts.
