The Gorges du Verdon

Grand Canyon in the Alpes de Haute Provence

Straddling the Alpes de Haute Provence and the Var, the Gorges du Verdon are unique in Europe. The Verdon river has carved a canyon of dizzying proportions out of the limestone rock. This grandiose spectacle can be admired from its heights, where panoramic views allow you to appreciate all its beauty, or from the river by canoe or kayak.
