From the time of booking we found the staff very friendly and English speaking. Time of arrival we were quickly kitted out with life jackets, string for glasses and camera's, water tight containers for our picnic lunch and belongings. Helmets were not offered. Groups were split into different speaking languages for our safety briefing. Short bus ride to the starting... More

There are many spots you might rent canoes im this area, many of them family owned and runned businesses. Loulou is obviously quite famous but in future we will choose another provider. Too crowded and too chaotic, e.g. our name hasn't been on the pick-up list for the way back to the parking.

This is my third decent but first time for my girlfriend. The briefing was concise and in English. All the equipment provided, buoyancy aid, helmets (with go pro clip) all in good working order. The staff at the centre and the sales office were friendly and happy to go the extra mile. Both coach journeys to drop off and collection... More

We're a family of 3 with an 8yr-old and have just returned from a trip to the Ardeche where one of the activities we were looking forward to most was a canoe trip down the Ardeche Gorge. Centred around Vallon Pont D'Arc, in the summer this is a serious industry, with many, many companies offering the 8km, 24km or 32km... More

We did 12km and the first bit was with 4 slides to go off of the waterfalls after that it goes further and you nearly don't have to paddle at all. We forgot to ask when we got to base where the photos would be but we though maybe online as on the tub was that squares code thingy. Someone... More
