This limestone canyon is the jewel of tourism in the Ardèche region. The canyon stretches out for many kilometres and the main 'entrance' is the impressive rock formation that paves the way to the winding river with its many rapids. No wonder this is such a popular spot with water sports fanatics: there are plenty of possibilities to practise or improve your canoeing skills. For those who like climbing, the steep walls lend themselves perfectly for a dazzling descent (or climb) and when you want to take things a bit slower, walk the road atop the rock formations and find your way through old villages, such as Florac and Hispagnac, and ruins.
