In Ardèche, cyclists are more than welcome. Cycling, in addition to being faster than walking, can be a lot of fun, especially if you explore our marked trails. Moreover, our characterful villages have the “Accueil VĂ©lo” label, so don’t forget your helmet!

Van holidays are all the rage these days. Imagine the freedom to travel wherever the road takes you, camping under the stars. The most luxurious option is undoubtedly the camper van, some of which are as comfortable as a house. Moreover, many campsites welcome you to our territory.

Public transportation

On the bus

Buses allow you to move around easily. The Auvergne-RhĂ´ne-Alpes region strives to facilitate travel in the heart of the Ardèche department, so don’t be late and always keep the schedule handy.

Voyager en Train

By train

Trains are a pleasant and easy way to get where you need to go. However, the peculiarity in Ardèche is that there are no longer any trains in service throughout the entire department. The nearest stations are Montélimar, followed by Valence Ville and Valence TGV.

By plane

The plane is an excellent way to reach a major city like Lyon and begin your adventure to Ardèche.

Voyager en Avion

With a bit of planning, it’s easy to travel to Ardèche from anywhere in the world.

Travelers flying in can rent a car in Lyon (2.5 hours by road). The roads are accessible throughout the year. Winter tires, chains, or socks may be necessary from November to April.

Exploring different modes of transportation is a fun way to discover new things and change your travel habits. The mode that suits you best depends on the region you’re in, the type of experience you want to have, and your personal preferences. We recommend trying as many as possible during your travel adventures.
