Monday: We will rent canoes for the group (included in the event price) and do a 32 km tour on the Ardèche river down to Pont-Saint-Esprit where we will be picked up and get a lift back to the Camping Site. The canoes are two-seaters.
Tuesday: We will go on a hike along the Ardèche river. Starting point is the Camping site. From there we will hike to the Dragonnière de Labastide (supposedly a dragon cave?). About half way through we will have to cross the river which is supposed to be knee deep (Adventure). Water levels have to be checked beforehand. Better to bring some shoes or sandals along that can get wet. I don’t know it it can be crossed barefoot. From there to La Châtaigneraie, a nice beach. From there the same way back to the camping site.

Wednesday: We will pack our stuff and leave the Camping site and head back to Heidelberg. Spontaneously we could decide to add some additional activity.
Also after the scheduled activities we can decide to do something spontaneously. There are caves and much more ..
I offer 3 seats in my car. 64 euros per person. If the passengers on the back seat agree I could offer a fourth seat. Be aware that this is going to be a 8,5 hours drive! We will start at 8:00 and arrive around 17:00. +491624533588
