OCA Ardèche Descent 2017

As in previous years, Ian Dennies and I are running a four-day trip on the Ardèche from 29th May-2th June.
It's a superb trip: paddling through a remarkable gorge and having a night's bivouac on the national park.
Given the nature of the river, there are limited places. We will work on a first-come, first-served basis.
