Challenge yourself!

Within a radius of 30 kilometers around the camping ground you will find a huge variety of landscapes. Deep valleys, bushy mountainsides and high plateaus. Sloping hills with vineyards and outstretched lavender fields, rough volcanic landscapes, where rivers start and impressive gorges have been created by the erosion of the limestone. This extraordinarily varied land not only makes the land one of the most beautiful areas of France, but also offers many possibilities and challenges for nature lovers and people who like an active holiday.

From the campsite we organize various (outdoors) activities. Some are guided by experienced and licensed guides. You can practice all activities on you own level.

Besides that there are also plenty of activities you can do on your own.

abseilen

You start 250 meters above the river (the Ardèche) and you will descend on one simple rope. You will enjoy a beautiful view. Below, you can see the tiny canoes weather the water. This is truly a great activity for those without fear of heights!

canyoning

Canyoning is a spectacular activity, where you descend through small rivers. You will wear a wetsuit and a helmet for safety. You will slip and slide on the rocks and at some points you have to jump into the water. This activity will be guided by a licensed French mountain guide and can be practiced at various levels (starting at age 5!)

Kanoën ardeche

A canoe ride for the whole family on the river Ardèche. Children can join, starting from age 7, but they do need to have their swimming certificate.

In the area there are several ways to ride in karts. The nearest kart track is a twenty minute drive away from the campsite. Adult racing fanatics can be very happy in France, because the karts are usually heavier than in The Netherlands and will go about 105 km/h. The minimum age for children is usually around 7 years old (depending on the length and build of the child). Children will get a small kart, specially adjusted clothing and extra protection. For children who cannot drive a kart yet, there are often different (and free) activities that are possible to do at the go-kart track.
