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).

  • Great area for hiking or simply visit, the landscapes are magnificent. Do the Ridge Road by car at the level of the palud, the landscapes are stunning, you can see vultures and is a place popular for climbing. Namely the road (which is a loop) should be taken in the sense of clockwise shows because in direction only on a part of the course.

  • Awesome. We took the D23 road up the mountain which is amazing! You end up driving to 1285 m high above the gorge. Its incredibly impressive and if anybody is a budding photographer, take your DSLR as there are stunning views of the Gorge itself, but also Vultures! At one of the viewing points there were 6 vultures right beside us - never seen them so up close. Incredible. We didn't get to boat up the Gorge as it was too windy and we were told it was a 'must', and it looked like it would be pretty amazing. So definitely recommend d that so leave a full day to do everything.
  • Posto incantevole. Da non perdere.
  • A beautiful spot, fantastic scenery, lovely people. Can't wait to revisit!
  • Only one word describes Gorges Du Verdon......."BREATHTAKING"
