What's it like?

This exciting two week family adventure holiday combines our two activity programmes in Italy and France, making one incredible family holiday. From the two day canoe descent of the Ardèche River in France to a day of white water rafting in Italy, this is an exciting, action-packed adventure.

This holiday begins in Italy where our private Adventure Camp is surrounded by alpine trees and offers magnificent mountain views. From here, you will get to experience an array of activities that make the most of the natural surroundings. Activities range from our on-site high ropes course in the trees to a day at the lake enjoying stand up paddleboarding and raft building. Not forgetting a full day of white water rafting, guided by a local rafting company.

You will then transfer to our flagship Ardeche Adventure Camp in the South of France where our spacious, private Adventure Camp offers excellent facilities including a swimming pool and cafe/bar. Here you will enjoy a two day canoe descent of the Ardèche River, guided by our qualified River Team and spend a night sleeping under the stars. Many of the other activities are within walking distance of the Adventure Camp and include climbing on a local crag, caving, abseiling and there is a popular visit to the local market in Ruoms.

The transfer from Italy to the Ardeche takes approximately six hours and there will be stops to relax and stretch your legs. You will have a packed lunch provided for the journey.

For just £809 for adults and £759 for children, this holiday offers excellent value and includes everything - transport, food, a full two week activity programme, instruction, kit & equipment and use of facilities.

Activities

This two week family adventure will introduce your family to so many exciting activities, many of which take place in beautiful natural environments- in the great outdoors. All activities are delivered by our qualified/assessed team of instructors, with the exception of white water rafting which is delivered by the local rafting guides. All activities are suited to age 7+ and you don't need to have done any of the activities before. We offer taster sessions, that introduce you to a range of activities, hopefully inspiring you to take up a new hobby when you get home.

Activities include: caving, kayaking, canoeing, raft building, abseiling, rock climbing, high ropes, archery, giant initiative, white water rafting, gorge scramble, paddleboarding, hill walking, fencing and campfire nights.

Typically, there is one activity session in the morning after breakfast, followed by lunch and an activity session in the afternoon, followed by some time to relax, dinner and evening entertainment. Some days you will stay on-site to enjoy activities and other days, you will travel off-site to the activity venue, where we will provide a buffet or a packed lunch.

Sample Programme

The Alpine Adventure Camp

Accommodation in Italy is at our Alpine Adventure Camp, which is in the pretty town of Villeneuve in the Aosta Valley, Italy. Ideally positioned close to the Dora Baltea River and surrounded by trees and mountains, it's the ideal base for adventure. Accommodation is in one of our traditional family tented villages, which offers up to sixteen pre-erected tents and a central marquee for dining and socialising. Families of four or more are offered two tents (a primary and a standard) and families of three are less are offered one standard tent, but can add a tent, or upgrade to a primary tent for a small additional charge.

The families who will be travelling on the coach will also be on your tented village, meaning that there is a great social side to this holiday and your children will have plenty of opportunities to make friends- giving you some precious adult time.

Standard tents are standing height and come with up to four raised beds with mattresses, a hard flooring and a lantern. Primary tents offer a few extras including an inner tent, wardrobe, electricity, a fridge and lighting.

Facilities include WI-FI, a small on-site shop and three toilet and shower blocks (one built in 2014) and volleyball areas. Within walking distance is the local town of Villeneuve offering bars, restaurants, a pizzeria and a swimming pool (there is a charge to use the pool).

The Ardèche Adventure Camp

Accommodation in the Ardeche is at our Ardeche Adventure Camp, which is a large, private camp, in between two rivers and nestled amongst the trees. Here, you will also be accommodated in one of our traditional pre-erected family tented villages, which offer the same as in Italy.

Facilities here include a swimming pool (with lifeguard), cafe/bar, pool tables, volleyball areas, WI-FI, a small on-site shop and two large toilet and shower blocks. There is a beach area at the far end of the camp that can be used in free time. Within walking distance is the local town of Ruoms (approximately 20 minutes walk away), which offers plenty of shops and other amenities.
