Canoe Hire Ardèche

Home / Canoe Hire Ardèche
In Vallon Pont d’Arc, canoe rental in the Ardèche is an institution. Indeed, the reputation of the Ardèche Gorges is beyond doubt. The wild and abrupt gorges sculpted through the millennia, sheltering the mythical Pont d’Arc natural arch and the Chauvet Cave. It is also on this Ardèche river that major canoeing world champions won their first races, and continue to come to recharge their batteries. By choosing canoe hire in the Ardèche, adventure and the countryside are on the menu for your descents!
