Visit Salavas with the family
At Salavas, an array of adventures awaits you and the family. On dry land, start with a bicycle ride during which campers big and small can admire the beautiful Ardèche landscapes. Follow that with a tree-top adventure at the “Accroche-toi aux branches” park.
On the water, equip the whole clan with paddles and life jackets and take to the river in a canoe, ready to descend the famous Gorges de l’Ardèche. The spectacular scenery is sure to remain etched in everyone’s memory. And after all that, your little cherubs simply won’t be able to resist the call of the water any longer and will dive head-first into the river!
