Ardeche tourist informationwhere to go - what to see - what to do
The Ardeche is known for its fast-flowing river that has carved narrow gorges into the valley creating one of the most breathtaking canyons in France.
The gorges can be explored by canoe or on foot along the many tourist trails. White water rafting is also popular!
The department has a gentler side to it - with castles, picturesque villages, gracious Belle Epoque spa towns, historic caves & rolling vineyards.
Protestantism has left its mark in the many austere churches of Les Vans, Privas & Lamastere. The Ardeche is France's leading producer of chestnuts enjoyed in soups, ragouts and gratins and more commonly sampled under the guise of 'marron glace'.
