Your Travel Arrangements
Travel arrangements are based on return coach travel from your school or college to the Ardeche, including return Channel crossings by Eurotunnel or ferry. On both the outbound and return journeys you will travel overnight, therefore your 9-day tour includes two nights on board the coach and six nights accommodation in the Ardeche. On each day in the Ardeche, your coach will provide all necessary transfers between your accommodation and the activities.
Your group will stay at one of our carefully selected campsites, close to Vallon Pont d'Arc. We highly recommend Camping Le Riviera, situated on the bank of the Ardeche with a private beach, where you will enjoy high quality camping facilities in the Sport Experiences village, that is kept exclusively for the use of Sport Experiences' guests.
