Welcome to Gorges de l’Ardèche


From Vallon-Pont-d'Arc, the area's main hub, the scenic riverside D290 zigzags for 29km along the canyon's rim, with 29 belvédères (panoramic viewpoints) revealing dazzling vistas of horseshoe bends, and kayakers in formation far below. However, it can turn into a chaotic traffic jam in midsummer.

Vallon-Pont-d'Arc is also the main base for visiting the Caverne du Pont d'Arc, which houses replicas of amazing prehistoric paintings.
