Ride the Ardèche rapids at domaine de segries

This holiday offers the perfect opportunity to try something completely different this summer!

Experience the exhilarating three-day canoe descent of the world famous Ardèche River in the south of France – an amazing and unforgettable experience.

Stay at Domaine de Segries and paddle your way through the stunning deep gorges of the Ardèche and get up close to the famous Pont d’Arc, a 60m high natural rock arch.

Plus, the descent includes the thrilling white water rapids.

During your time on the river you will stop for leisurely picnic lunches and have time to enjoy a swim. At the end of each day we’ll return you, via a coach transfer, back to the centre. If that wasn’t enough, you will also get to try out the fantastic centre-based activities, including Jacob’s Ladder, trapeze and mountain biking!


Every day is different
When you're not experiencing the exhilarating three-day canoe descent of the world famous Ardèche River we have an action packed multi activity programme designed to suit the whole family, no matter their tastes, preferences or previous experience.
