Visit the Ardèche with the family
Prepare your little campers! The programme for their family holiday in Ardèche promises to be a sporty one with the many outdoor pursuits on offer in this lovely natural spot. In the morning, enjoy canyoning in the Gorges de l’Ardèche or a tree-top adventure course playing Tarzan and Jane. Then head for the Gorges du Doux Vélorail in the afternoon for an amazing way to discover the Ardèche! On the downhill section, you’ll be at the helm of a little rail bike, driven by pedal power and revealing the stunning scenery as you go along. And don’t worry... for the climb back up, you’ll take the motorised railcar!
For a more relaxing activity, take a trip to the Païolive Wood, which will transport you and your tribe into a world of mystery and magic. This is an astonishing forest of petrified rocks that take on an animal appearance, and is ideal for some escapism in the heart of nature. Visitors of every age will let their imagination run wild as they try and make out the shape of the rocks dotted along their path. Who will come up with the most madcap suggestion?
