THE evian® SITE
(2 hours)

Access to the evian® natural mineral water bottling site in Amphion-les-Bains is only possible by dedicated evian® minibus. The site visit takes place in two stages:

- The evian® exhibition
- Bottling lines tour

Disabled access & buggies

Until 2020, due to the ongoing works on the bottling site, visits of the production lines will not be open to people with reduced mobility and strollers. Due to its length (approximately 2km) and the many stairs involved (the equivalent of 2 floors), the tour is not suitable for people who have difficulty walking. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience caused.

Those unable to take this second visit must remain in the evian® exhibition area

THE evian® JOURNEY

Important

Visits to the Cachat source and the impluvium (1000 meters above sea level) take place outside. Don't forget to consult the weather forecast on the day of the visit and please wear suitable clothing for the conditions.

THE DAY OF THE VISIT

Access to the bottling site is ONLY DONE BY dedicated minibus. No personal vehicles are allowed at the bottling site. You are therefore required to take the transports provided to and from the site and to remain for the duration of your chosen visit.

SECURITY

For organisational and security reasons, online booking is mandatory. Bookings on the site close 48 hours in advance of visits.

Safety is very important to us and the production site is subject to very strict rules: you will be asked for official ID before boarding the bus.

In the event of failure to present ID, it will unfortunately be impossible for us to authorize your participation. If your child does not have ID, please ensure to bring your ‘livret de famille’ (official family record book).

Since the site is subject to the provisions of ‘Plan Vigipirate’ (France’s national security alert system), you will have to pass through metal detectors. Please also note that you may be searched and that you should thus avoid bringing metal objects with you.

During the tour of the bottling lines, please remain with the rest of the group, as any wandering may interfere with the smooth conduct of the visit.

We would like to inform you that the site is under video surveillance to ensure the safety of people and property.

ANIMALS

The site is an agri-food site, where many strict health and safety rules apply, so animals are strictly prohibited.
