2 days descent

Bateaux du Pont offer you two days with a night in the Gaud (1/3 of the route) or Gournier (1/2 the route) bivouac. These bivouacs are equipped with shared barbecues plus charcoal for your grills, washrooms (shower and W.C) and drinking water.

Important: : Since the 2000 season, prefectoral regulations limit the number of places on the bivouac area. This affects all week-ends from May to September and public holidays (called red nights). It is imperative to reserve your tickets as soon as possible by contacting the reservation centre (even two months before the office opens).
If the bivouacs are full, contact us, we will offer another solution.

For the 2 days bring :
Meals (you can provide meat (sausages, grills) that you freeze to use the barbecues) and breakfast (small stove for a hot drink with small saucepan), drinks, small tent, duvet, dustbin bag for your rubbish, rubble sack to protect your tent and the pegs that will be strapped onto the canoe with your container, helmet, closed water shoes, warm clothes and spares depending on the period, pharmaceutical items (sun cream, cream for cuts, blood blisters, insect bites), headaches, pocket lamp (no lighting at the bivouacs).

Meet in Saint-Martin d'Ardèche at Bateaux du Pont (beside the Hôtel Bellevue) at 9h45 (time to prepare yourself and collect your bivouac tickets from the Tourist Office) for a planned departure by minibus about 10:30/11:00.
