2 days canoe Descent of the Ardèche 16+16km
What’s the Fifty-Fifty trip ?
The 32km descent of the Ardèche over two days without the logistical inconvenience of an overnight stay in a bivouac!
After your first day of paddling during the first 16 kilometers, you will leave your canoes on the beach of the bivouac at Gournier, before walking up the path (45 minute steep uphill walk) joining the “Route des gorges” where one of our shuttles will be waiting to take you back to Vallon Pont d’Arc.
You will spend the night there in a structure of your choice (night not included in your canoe rental).
The next day, our shuttles will take you back to the pick-up point of the first day where you can walk down the path and join your canoes left on the beach of the bivouac of Gournier the day before and embark for the last 16 kilometer of your trip.

Détails de votre descente
For this formula, a deposit of 30 € per canoe will be required.
On the first day, the start of the 16 + 16 km descent takes place directly from our pier located route des gorges in Vallon Pont d’Arc, between 8:00 am and 11:00 am.
Before leaving, please plan a sufficient quantity of water and food for your day because you will not find any snacks or restaurants during your journey.
After having been equipped (waterproof cans, life jackets, etc.) and informed about the trip and the paddle technique by our team, your boats will be waiting for you 100m from our premises for an immediate departure.
Your first day of navigation ends at the bivouac of Gournier, where, after having carefully stowed your boats on the shore, you will have to go up to the Route des gorges on foot, with your barrel and life jacket (around 45 minutes from walking on steep path).
A shuttle will ensure your pick up on the Route des gorges at 6.30 p.m. and will bring you back to our Vallon-pont-d’Arc office. You will spend the night in the accommodation of your choice (not included in the price of the canoe reservation).
The second day, meeting will be given at our pier between 9:30 am and 10:00 am. A shuttle will take you to the path leading to the Gournier bivouac so that you can take back your boats left the day before.
Allow 3 hours of paddling from the Gournier bivouac to reach Sauze.
arrivée & retour
At the end of your second day, our shuttles will be waiting for you at the SAUZE landing stage from 3:00 p.m. After disembarking, our teams will direct you to the buses that will take you back to Vallon Pont d´Arc.
