What to visit in the Gorges du Verdon

The Verdon is a large ancestral river that flows through the Alpes de Haute Provence department and out into the River Durance. Over time, coursing from its source in the Alps, it has eroded the rocky terrain to form the biggest canyon in Europe, les Gorges du Verdon (Verdon Gorge).

Steep rock faces, exhilarating rapids near the source and calm waters downstream … a little something for everyone.
