Pilier d’Autridge in the Ardèche Gorges

Autridge abseiling in the Ardèche Gorges

The highest abseiling experience in Ardèche

– If you like to challenge yourself and you’re not afraid of heights, and especially if you would like to be one of the lucky ones to enjoy a spectacular view over the Ardèche Gorges, we have exactly what you’re looking for: an abseiling experience from the Pilier d’Autridge!

Autridge viewpoint can be found at the beginning of the tourist route along the Ardèche Gorges, and it’s the highest point for abseiling in Ardèche: it overlooks the river, over 200 m up above!

Are you ready for the highest abseiling experience in Ardèche? Let’s go! After a 5-minute walk from the car park, you will reach the first stage: a small “via corda” over a rocky ledge, to get to the relay. You’ve arrived: just under your feet is a 180 m drop…

Along with your guide, and comfortably equipped with your harness, with a seated support (you might as well be comfortable to really make the most of the amazing views!), you will begin abseiling down the spider’s web (that means you won’t be touching the cliff at all, you’ll be hanging in thin air).

We are warning you, it’s a really overwhelming experience! But what a sensational one! You are sitting up there in thin air, 180m above the river, surrounded by the huge cliffs of the Ardèche Gorges, just you and the natural environment. Simply magical…
