Les Gorges du Verdon, Alpes-de-Haute-Provence

  • From Brignoles, then Barjols, along the Lake of Holy Cross and back up the Gorge by the left bank and down the right bank taking the Ridge descending one way road. Do not hesitate to stop at all points of view on this road (small parking areas) to approach the Canyon and discover the vultures and the followers of climbing. This road is closed until may in some years. If you can finish over dinner the evening at Moustier Sainte-Marie. I recommend the restaurant in the centre of the village with a terrace on the river.

  • The scenery is simply breathtaking. Every nature lover the heart goes on there, garatiert! Pedal boat you can rent and drive through the Gorge... would I recommend also. An experience you will never forget!

  • Tour not to be missed if you are a nature lover. The road that runs alongside has many sights that allows you to make many photographs in these beautiful landscapes. In August are very crowded by tourists especially in the vicinity of the Lake. Suggest that you have a map of the area.
