Canyon Geologic Formation
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). A visit to Les Gorges du Verdon represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Aiguines trip itinerary planner to plot your vacation.

  • How to put less than 5 stars has this exeptional location and breathtaking? Certainly many many world in this highly tourist spot but the gorges are victims of their own success

  • The gorges du Verdon traveling down several times with the car and your mouth is open! Amazing beautiful. Definitely stop and go down where it can move with your feet in the water (water is ice cold-good for blood flow) In the small villages you meet you can eat (plat de jour) for a very small price-around 14 euros. Decision: DO!!!

  • A nice trip made along this gap at the end of the ride with a nice view of the Lake!! During our trip a few times stopped to the beautiful view to enjoy. It was beautiful! Really worth it!
