The route through the gorge is top of the class! Highly recommended as well as Loulou Bateaux. I suggest to start as early as possible because you are expected back by 17.00. We started paddling at 9.30 and did not have that much time for breaks. I wish Loulou Bateaux would also offer a late return option, let's say 18.00 or even 18.30. I would have paid EUR 10 more for this option because it would have left more time in the gorge (very beautiful spots) as well as less hurry for paddling.

The slides are the highlight of the first part, but they get extremely jammed so I'd recommend only doing the second part.

We did the 8 km “mini-descente” from Vallon passing underneath the Pont d’Arc. 2 adults & 4 children in 3 canoes. It was a superb experience for the whole family. Instructions given at the start were very helpful. Very friendly staff. All very well organized including the return bus. Highly recommended!

The team were clear with health and safety measures and prepared and explained everything well. The 12km was great for our family (11 year old child).

Apparently the experience of the course in two days was well lived! Gaud's bivouac is the more natural of the two, a great option! We are very happy with this return Thank you to you and to the pleasure ;-)
