Camping Holidays in Ardèche and Auvergne

Nature in Ardèche and Auvergne


Vals-les-Bains, Ardèche

This river valley is home to 100 natural springs packed full of all sorts of minerals. And be warned – there’s a geyser that erupts four times a day with a 25 foot spurt. Even when you know it’s coming - it’s still a bit of a shock!

Gorges du Tarn

Gorges du Tarn, Auvergne

These are the deepest gorges in Europe and stretch for almost 50km - ideal for hiking so come prepared, and keep a look out for hidden ancient castles and amazing views.

Parc National des Cévennes

Parc National des Cévennes

Get closer to nature in this vast and beautiful wilderness, which offers you spectacular scenery at every turn, not to mention more than 2,300 species of flora and fauna.

Grotte de la Madeleine

Grotte de la Madeleine, Ardèche Canyon

There are hidden caves throughout the region, but these are probably the best known - don’t miss the ‘son ét lumiére’ show.


Vulcania, Saint Ours-Les Roches

Set amongst the largest set of volcanoes in Europe, this unique theme park can take you right to the heart of an active crater (virtually of course). There are lots of great volcano themed rides and big screen footage of real life eruptions. There are also nature trails to explore.

Pont d’Arc

Pont d’Arc

This remarkable natural bridge is 60m high and 50m long and was hewn out of the rock by the Ardèche River. You can float underneath it - just before you hit the white waters of the river’s descent!
