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

One of Europe’s most beautiful canyons, Les Gorges du Verdon is about 25 km (15.5 mi) long and up to 700 m (2,296 ft) deep. The River Verdon, known for its turquoise color, carved out the gorge. At the end of the canyon, the river flows into artificial Lac de Sainte-Croix. Drive around the canyon's rim, rent kayaks, or hike. Rock climbers enjoy the high limestone walls, which are suitable for multi-pitch climbing. Trekkers can choose from 1,500 routes, ranging from 20 m to over 400 m (65 ft to 1,312 ft).

    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.
