What a trip we had!! The Ardèche is one of the most beautiful, if not the most, area I have ever been to. I definetly recommend Viking Bateaux. The transfer to the starting point was very good arranged, but we had to wait a little longer for the transfer back. Maybe that was because we paddled to hard ;)

Experience to do, the landscapes are sublime. The only downside is very hot in the bus on the way back.
