Adventure raid in Ardèche

The adventure raid over two or three days

As you make your way down river you become true adventurers.

Enjoy a meal amongst friends or as a couple, under the open skies or ensconced in a snug tent.

In the morning, you have a lot to be ready for! A bit of paddling, some white waters for fun, a pause for a snack, a swim, a nap and then a bit more paddling.
You will then begin to see, ahead of you, the landing jetty, the bus awaiting and the bustle you had almost forgotten existed.
There is no point trying to paddle backwards though – the cruel current will not let you escape. The only solution is to have a new attempt – you can be assured that it will be just as enjoyable even if different, as no two runs are ever the same.

We will be waiting and look forward to greeting you again amongst us!
