Verdon Gorge: The Must-Do Activities

Verdon Gorge: What to do when you get there?

The Verdon Gorge are a river canyon located between Marseille and Nice, not far from the French Riviera. It was carved by the Verdon river over the millennia, reaching now a depth between 250 and 700 metres.

In 1990, the spot became a protected natural site due to its geological features and its wild natural beauty. The canyon encompasses a vast area, from the town of Castellane until Moustiers-Sainte-Marie.

Prepare to be impressed by the exceptional beauty of the Verdon Gorge, but also by the rich biodiversity of its environment. Here, you will have the opportunity to admire the griffon vulture, extincted during the 19th century and reintroduced at the end of the 90s. The cinereous and Egyptian vultures are also two other species that live in this area.

The gorgeous turquoise waters of the river offer a wide range of water sports. You can practice kayaking, rafting and even canoeing.

If you prefer to keep you feet on the ground but enjoy gaining height, many interesting climbing routes are available in the gorge. Here, you can practice rock climbing whether you are a beginner or an expert. They are one of the world's most renowned routes.   

For more thrills, you can jump from the Artuby bridge, one of the highest bridge in Europe. It is therefore the highest bungee jumping spot in Europe, 182 metres high from the ground!

However, canyoning remains the most famous outdoor activity in the Verdon Gorge. Action Aventure club offer a sporty and recreational canyoning excursion in Clue du Riolan. Brace yourself for a water course, with lots of canal pounds entrenched between to high limestone cliffs in one of France's most beautiful canyons.

Come visit the Verdon Gorge with your family and friends and enjoy the numerous activities this unique spot has to offer!
