Classic Ardèche Experience at lou valagran

A perfect combination for adventurous families!

Paddle the stunning Ardèche River descent, completed over two days by canoe with overnight 'back to nature' riverside bivouac and try out a range of on-site activities.

Enjoy beautiful scenery and the thrill of navigating the rapids as you paddle the Ardèche River. The highlight of this holiday has got to be the overnight bivouac (or ‘bivi’) at a designated riverside site.

Nothing adds to the experience of paddling through the Ardèche better than sleeping under the stars in the middle of the nature reserve!

As well as completing the descent you will have two full days of activities at our purpose-built centre and a free day to relax and discover the stunning local area.
