The “Réserve Naturelle des Gorges de l’Ardèche” is a nature reserve along the River Ardèche. In summer, you can canoe or kayak along the 32 km stretch (sections possible) with its many rapids or swim and linger at one of the many bathing spots. The area can also be hiked over long stretches. The “Route des Gorges” along the gorge can be traveled by car or bike and spectacular views can be discovered from numerous points. Other sporting activities are possible in the canyon.
