Our family-friendly campsite La Grand'Terre, located on the banks of the Ardèche River, is a great home base for exploring the region through all sorts of sporting activities. Hikes through nature, canoeing down the Ardèche Gorges, the Trail Run of the Ardèche Gorges, and more: there's simply no time to be bored!
Our family-friendly campsite in Ruoms, on the edge of the Ardèche Gorges, offers a long canoe trip departing directly from our private beach. Base Nautique du Pont d'Arc will accompany you along 15 kilometres on the water, passing through breathtaking scenery before you reach the village of Châmes. A shuttle will then return you to the campsite. For this family outing, open to children ages 7 and up, all participants must know how to swim.
Base Nautique du Pont d'Arc offers mini-excursions for beginners looking for a fun family activity. The trip covers 8 kilometres, departing from Vallon-Pont-d'Arc, passing under the famous archway of the Pont d'Arc and arriving in Châmes. It is a great introduction to canoeing. The journey itself takes about 1½ hours, but you are given more time to explore the river and its magnificent surroundings.
To discover the majestic Ardèche Gorges, Base Nautique du Pont d'Arc also offers full-day excursions of 24 kilometres (departing from Châmes) or 31 kilometres (departing from Vallon-Pont-d'Arc). Throughout the day, you will be able to observe the gorgeous natural setting of the Ardèche Gorges, that are accessible only on foot or in a canoe. Take the time to enjoy your day, exploring the river, swimming, picnicking on the riverbank and more... The journey takes 5 to 6 hours, but here again you are given the full day to take full advantage of the experience. You will disembark in Sauze, at the end of the Ardèche Gorges.
