Gorges du Verdon

Canyon of the Verdon: The dazzling beauty of Europe’s biggest canyon

About 75 km

The emerald blue waters of the Verdon and time have hollowed out the foothills of the Alps in the hinterland, to create Europe’s most spectacular canyon. These gorges, where the river runs between the dazzling cliffs, shape one of the most extraordinary nature sites of France. The site can be admired from the belvederes that seem to be tightrope walking in the heights of the canyon, or during a canoe trip on the river. Whatever way you choose to explore the canyon, it will offer you a breathtaking sight of unspoiled and remarkable nature.
