Go down the drome

We recommend the descent of the Drôme, especially in spring or early summer when the river is still high.

The Drôme is one of the last rivers of France relatively wild, with no dam. Small islands, blue water, limestone rocks: plan a break, you will certainly want to stop for a swim.

Several renters are located in the villages that line the Drôme.
