Verdon gorges - Tourism in the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence

Situated on the border between the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence and Var départements, the famous Verdon gorges – whose high limestone cliffs reach 700 metres in places! – form an impressive canyon. The best way to explore this exceptional natural site is driving along the gorge tourist road, which is lined with a number of panoramic viewpoints. Don't miss stopping at Point Sublime, where the view is, as its name suggests, truly sublime!

Offering first-class hiking, the "Grand Canyon" of Verdon is also a popular destination with climbers, paragliders and fans of white-water sports like canoeing and kayaking.

For thrill-seekers, bungee jumping is available from Artuby bridge in the Var département.
