Descent of the Ardèche in 2 days – 16 + 16 km

The 16 + 16 km package allows you to visit the Ardèche Gorges over two days with a night stopover at the accommodation of your choice (not included in the canoe reservation).

At the end of the first day, you will leave your canoe on the beach at Gournier bivouac and we will pick you up with the shuttle service and take you back to our landing stage. On the second day, you will retrieve your canoe for the second part of the trip to the Sauze landing stage.

Consult the “Details” tab for further information about the organisation of your day.

For this package, a €30 deposit is required for each canoe.


Departure :

On the first day, the 16 + 16 km descent departs from our landing stage between 8 am and 11 am.

When you arrive, we will provide you with information about the sailing conditions and the organisation of your day and we will supply you with your equipment: watertight containers (26 L or 56 L), life jackets and paddles.

Once you are equipped and have been informed, you will be able to embark and start your descent.


Descent :

The first day of your descent ends at the Gournier bivouac. After having carefully stored your canoe on the banks of the bivouac, you will have to walk up to the Gorges road with your container and life jacket.

Note: access to the Gorges road involves a 45-minute walk up a steep path!!

A shuttle service will collect you on the Gorges road at 6.30 pm and take you back to the landing stage at Vallon-Pont-d'Arc. You will spend the night in the accommodation of your choice (not included in the canoe reservation price).

On the second day, you will be asked to be at our landing stage between 9.30 am and 10 am. A shuttle service will take you to the path leading to Gournier bivouac so that you can recover the canoes you left there the previous day.

It will take 3 hours of paddling from the Gournier bivouac to reach Sauze.

Arrival and return :

Our shuttle service will wait for your at the landing stage in Sauze from 3 pm to take you back to Vallon-Pont-d'Arc. Once you have disembarked, our drivers will invite you to climb into the buses.

These will depart once they are full, therefore, we are unable to indicate exactly how long you will have to wait although we do try to ensure that waiting time is kept to a minimum.
