  • Family-friendly site at the southern entrance of Écrins National Park
  • Near the famed rafting spot of the Rabioux-Durance tributary
  • Summer pool, pétanque court, bike storage and fishing

If you've ever been rafting, this is the spot to get splashingly stuck in. As it still is even if you're new to the art, as Camping Hôtel de Plein Air les Cariamas is near the famed rafting spot of the Rabioux Wave, one of the most adrenalised options on its surrounding Durrance river.

Canyoning, climbing, wild swimming at Lac de Serre-Ponçon and, less headily, donkey rides into the mountains are all top picks around here too: Plein Air les Cariamas is at the southern entrance of Écrins National Park for days doing all these, and is about 20 minutes' hike from the active town of Châteauroux-les-Alpes. Even more hair raisingly, tandem paraglide flights are 10 minutes' drive away or about 35 minutes by bus, at Embrun.

After days out trying all those, retreat thankfully to recuperate on six peaceful hectares among beaut mountain views, whether you seek to loll around the pool, cast off for fishing, or keep your muscles active playing pétanque or hiring a bike to pedal around the grounds. There's free wifi too, should you care to do nothing more than surf, and a play area to keep the kids occupied while you research your next kayaking moves.

Plein Air les Cariamas has a grocery shop, fresh produce and gas cylinder sales. Barbecues are allowed.

Local attractions

This centrally placed site has easy access to heaps of old mountain attractions, such as Embrun Cathedral 15 minutes' drive away, the 12th-century abbey at Boscodon (20 minutes) and the silver mines of Fournel, half an hour away. The UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Fortifications of Vauban is within 50 minutes' drive.

Kayakers will find this a cracking spot to wield the paddle in, as it's close to the Rabioux Wave, one of the most famed freewater kayaking destinations in Europe. If this isn't your thing, you can set out from the Rabioux leisure centre for via ferrata climbs, canyoning and mountain biking: whichever you pick, pack a steady nerve and an adventurous spirit.

One of the biggest artificial lakes in Europe, Lac de Serre-Ponçon, is 20 minutes away for more peaceful times: you can swim or fish here, hire a boat or kayak for a gentler watery time than that of Rabioux, or pedal/hike the handsome paths around the lake. To expend even less effort, donkey rides are available about 10 minutes' drive from here.
