Verdon Gorges

The emerald waters of the Verdon have cut through Provence, north of the French Riviera, to create Europe’s greatest canyon. From its riverhead at the Col d’Allos (2247m) to where it joins the Durance River, the Verdon river flows some 175 km.

Known as the Gorges du Verdon, the 22km of navigable river from Castellane to ‘Point Sublime’, the entrance of the Grand Canyon, is one of the most popular rafting courses in the South of France.

A dam controls the flow and levels vary so that time rather than distance is specified for your trip. White water activities are possible certain days of the week from spring to autumn.

This spectacular canyon is located in the “Provence-Alpes-Côtes-d’Azur”, between the Var and the Alpes de Haute Provence, and less than 2 hours drive from the French Riviera and the cities of Marseille, Nice, Cannes and Saint-Tropez.
