The Samson Corridor

The Samson Corridor is a hiking trail located in the Gorges du Verdon

The Samson Couloir connects the Point Sublime to the Blanc-Martel trailhead. You can park your car at the Point Sublime and walk one hour to reach the Verdon. It is of course possible to continue along the Verdon on the path Blanc-Martel to discover the banks of the Verdon. A very nice walk, not very difficult.

You can of course continue on the Blanc-Martel trail to follow the river more closely. The Blanc-Martel trail is very long but not very difficult. The only way to come back is to take the same trail.
