The Gorges du Verdon

A magnificent trip to discover the largest canyon in Europe: the Gorges du Verdon

The landscapes of the Gorges du Verdon are among the most beautiful in France, you have to take your time to discover all the beauty of the gorges because the access and the visit are not so easy. You can choose the option all car with "La route des crêtes" which will make you discover magnificent points of view on the Gorges of Verdon. You can also choose the option of walking down to the Verdon river which flows down the gorges. Count on at least one hour of walking for the descent. Finally, don't expect to enjoy swimming too much, there are no real beaches (you have to go further).
