Ardeche Gorge

Paradise The Gorge d’Ardeche by canoe is the best way

 

A rest day watching the tour and eating everything in sight and I was ready for another adventure. I’ve canoed down the Ardeche Gorge many years ago and now it was time to see it from up top. The canoe route is about 20km long and idyllic, I’d recommend it to everyone. After the ride over the valley of the AutoRoute du Soleil and the Rhone to get there it’s a fantastic ride too.

It was a ride to remember on an idyllic day, next time I need to spend some more time there. The pictures speak a thousand words.

The bridge to Salavas. That’s a very cool canoe chute run over the weir on the left.
