Gorges de l'Ardèche

Highly recommended
The famous Pont d'Arc requires no introduction. This monumental natural arch ushers you into one of the most imposing natural phenomena in the southern region of France in a most grandiose fashion. Most of the gorges were declared a protected nature reserve in 1980 and the entire area was designated a site of national interest in 1993. The well-worn tourist route along the left bank rises up to take on the mountainside road, whose many viewpoints afford panoramic views that will take your breath away! Have a go at kayaking down at least part of the gorge.
