Canoeing on the Ardeche

We like to kayak and look for interesting river sections for it when we travel. The Ardèche, a tributary of the Rhone about 120 km long, has carved a deep canyon in the southern French mountain landscape on its way through the karstified rock. The result is a natural spectacle with walls of limestone rock up to 300 metres high.
The photo was taken between Vallon-Pont-d’Arc and Pont-St.-Esprit, a particularly spectacular section with the Gorges de l’Ardèche.

Nous aimons faire du kayak et regarder en voyageant s’il y a des tronçons de rivière intéressants pour cela. L’Ardèche, un affluent du Rhône long d’environ 120 km, a creusé un profond canyon dans le paysage montagneux du sud de la France en traversant des roches karstiques. Le résultat est un spectacle naturel avec des parois de roches calcaires pouvant atteindre 300 mètres de haut.
La photo a été prise entre le Vallon-Pont-d’Arc et le Pont-St.-Esprit, un tronçon particulièrement spectaculaire avec les Gorges de l’Ardèche.
