    After a leisurely morning at the campsite, you will drive down the Route de Vallon into the Ardèche valley. The landscape gives you many great views over the valleys of the increasingly furrowed high plateau down to Vallon-Pont-d'Arc.On the way you will pass the Chauvet 2 grotto. The entire area is a paradise for speleologists and those who want to become one. Interesting stalactite caves and relics from the Stone Age can be found everywhere. If you are interested in this topic, it may be worthwhile to stay in this corner and explore the Ardèche to the south. The town of Vallon-Pont-d'Arc is a good base for such endeavors.Especially in the summer months, the Ardèche valley is also quite popular with tourists and the idyllic river turns into a colorful sea of kayaks. The route of the gorges, which follows the gorge and river to the south, is an impressive, but equally demanding route - and there is often very heavy traffic here. An absolute highlight for racing cyclists, but rather arduous for touring cyclists.If you still want to go exploring the gorge, you can also take the waterway. The gorge can be crossed by kayak within a day without any problems and the rental services are happy to meet you and alternatively transport your bike and luggage to the exit point.On this tour you leave the Ardèche valley as quickly as you cycled into it. In the southwest you pass the small villages Salavas and Vagnas to Barjac. The small town with its medieval castle invites you to take a break before continuing west over wide stretches of land and past lavender fields. Shortly before Saint-Sauveur-de-Cruzières, turn off the main road towards Saint-Ambroix. Shortly afterwards you have already reached the cozy town on the banks of the Cèze.There are a few campsites for overnight stays. At that time I stayed at the "Le Clos". A somewhat more unusual camping option can be found below the Guisquet tower on the "Le Tour". From there it is not very far to the tower, from which you have a wonderful view over the city.
