When to visit the Ardèche gorges ?
The Ardèche and the gorges can be visited all year round.
However, the best time to visit the gorges is when they are at their greenest and when the water is warm during the summer months in particular and more widely between April and October. Beware, however, that the water level is often a little lower in summer than in the rest of the period.
This season offers a mild and temperate climate, which is ideal for enjoying the region. It is also the time when nature reveals its colorful character.
And finally, it is obviously more pleasant to go for a walk or a swim in the summer sun, when the clean air of the vegetation or the temperature of the water refreshes you, than at any other time.
