Departure :

Before booking a canoe, it is imperative to reserve your Bivouac overnight with the "Syndicat des Gorges de l'Ardèche".

!! the night in bivouac is not included in the canoe reservation !!

During these two days of adventure, you will be in total autonomy, so be sure to take enough water and food for your two days of canoing, as well as for your evening in camp.
You will also need to bring your sleeping equipment (tent and sleeping bag). You have the possibility to sleep in the collective tents (Marabout) proposed by the management union of the Gorges de l'Ardèche (see the site for rates and reservations).
On the bivouac areas, you will find toilets and shower.

Departures of the descent on 2 days with bivouac are directly from our office in Vallon-Pont-d'Arc, from 8:00 to 15:00. Before your departure, you will be given a waterproof container of 56L per person, and our teams will help you possibly strap your tent to the canoe.

Warning: Families boarding a child in third place (in a two-seater canoe) can only have one 56L container.


Consider 2h30 of paddling time to reach the bivouac of Gaud, and about 3:30 for the bivouac Gournier which is halfway.
Arrived at Gaud or Gournier, you will stay on the bivouac area and make the most of the charcoal barbecues available, as well as shower and toilets.
The next day, the departure of the bivouacs is before 10:00. You will then have around 4 hours paddling time left if you leave the bivouac of Gaud and 3 hours if you leave the bivouac of Gournier.

Arrival and return:

At the end of your second day, our shuttles will be waiting for you at the SAUZE finish stage from 16:00. After disembarking, our teams will direct you to the bus that will take you back to Vallon Pont d'Arc.

We are not able to tell you exactly how long you have to wait before you leave, although we make sure that it is as short as possible.
