Gorges de l'Ardeche 13kms

The big mini-descent

As you approach the canyon of the Ardèche gorges, you will glide across large stretches of calm water punctuated by dams. Slides enable you to go from one level to the next; this is the "Walibi" section. The next 8km between VALLON PONT D'ARC and CHAMES, is more animated and offers your first real taste of canoeing with 6 rapids to navigate including the famous Charlemagne and the passage under the natural arch of the Pont d'Arc.
