A night in bivouac requires a minimum of preparation. You will need to plan to eat and drink for two days.


Small advice, for lovers of grilling, we advise you to take meat or fish from the freezer, so your food will not suffer from the heat during the first day in canoe.
Plan a duvet, tent or hammock for the night under the stars.

But no stress if you do not have the necessary equipment for the campsite, you now have the possibility to book during the booking the bivouac ticket, tents for 3 people, mattresses, cozy tents for up to 6 places and even large marabout tents for 15 people.

Attention these equipment are very much in demand on the pre-season weekends.

For your waste, you will find composters for organic waste on site, but you will have to transport your other waste to the arrival beach of Sauze where glass, sorting and household bins are installed.

We therefore advise you to limit your waste as much as possible by favoring, for example, reusable containers, water bottles, non-disposable cutlery.

Finally, last important point, to preserve the tranquility of the place, alcohol is prohibited on the bivouac areas of Gaud and Gournier. The reserve agents in charge of managing the site will ensure that this prohibition is respected.

You now know everything about the bivouac of Gaud and Gournier and the descents of the Gorges de l’Ardèche in 2 days over 31 km or 36 km.

So do not hesitate and book your adventure in 2 days in the heart of the majestic Gorges de l’Ardèche.
