Outdoor activities in the Ardèche
When it comes to outdoor activities, the Ardèche is without any doubt one of France’s most interesting areas! With its rivers, canyons, hiking paths and mountains, in an incredibly beautiful natural setting, the Ardèche proposes an almost unlimited offer of outdoor sports and activities. From a relaxing walk to an intense mountain bike course or an exciting canoe trip on the Ardèche, there is an outdoor activity for everyone. As soon as you leave La Roubine a large variety of activities open up to you.
Canoe and kayak on the Ardèche
Of course the main activity in the southern Ardèche remains the canoe and kayak trip down the river Ardèche. You must fulfill two conditions if you want to go canoeing: be at least 7 years old and be able to swim a distance of 25 m.
There are several possibilities to go on a kayak trip, depending on the distance and the degree of difficulty: from 8 km to 32 km for the bravest, going from half a day to 2 days with a bivouac halfway in the Gorges. We have a partnership with the company Alpha Bateaux for many years and they will pick you up from the campsite and bring you back after your trip. You only need to register at the reception a day before!
Accroche Toi Aux Branches
There is another outdoor activity in the middle of nature and easy to practice by every member of the family (if you don’t suffer from vertigo): the acrobatic treetop courses (Accrobranche)! Not far from the campsite you can visit the park Accroche-toi aux branches which offers a large choice of different courses that can be practiced from 6 years on!
With its 7 different and evolving circuits of all levels of difficulty, you can participate in over 120 workshops (hanging bicycle, skateboard, slide etc) and get a thrill on the 1600m of zip lining without any danger because of an intelligent system of snap hooks all over the park. Please note that this park also possesses a Paintball activity.
