Gorges du Verdon

The Gorge du Verdon is a famous canyon with white-water rapids in the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence region of France.

The Verdon River has carved it way through the limestone mass and in places to a depth to over 700 metres. Hire a canoe and drift down the Verdon River and discover its past.

Visitors can explore the area by taking a number of walking routes include the Blanc-Martel trail which ends at the Point Sublime lookout.

The 12th century Chapelle Notre-Dame de Beauvoir in the village of Moustiers-Sainte-Marie is a must visit and set within the Verdon Natural Regional Park there are a number of museums including ceramics at the Musée de la Faïence with its displays of ceramics and the Musée des Tourneurs-sur-Bois which showcases local woodwork.
