How to choose your water activities in the Gorges du Verdon?

You want to do activities in the Gorges du Verdon while enjoying the coolness of the water? You don’t know yet which activity to choose to meet your expectations? We’re here to give you some tips to help you in your search:

Enjoy a day or a half day of canoeing in the Gorges du Verdon. From the Esparron Lake or in the center of the Gorges, take the time to explore the landscapes along the water in your two-seater canoe!

However, if you don’t want to paddle, you can also rent electric boats. Thanks to this, you will be able to travel more kilometers along the Gorges or on the Sainte Croix Lake, without getting tired.

Canoeing in the Verdon is an option that allows you to discover the surroundings along the river. Therefore it is the most suitable solution if you wish to explore the Verdon far from the crowd. The canoeing in the Gorges de Baudinard allows you, thanks to a shuttle system, to return to your starting point. 

A little more sporty is the canoe adventure in the Gorges du Verdon, with a half hour walk. Thanks to this experience you will discover the heart of the Gorges that’s almost unexplored.  

In both cases, the used canoe used is a Pack Raft. It is a very solid and light inflatable boat that can be stored in a backpack (3kg)! Developed in Canada and still unknown in France, the interest of this new type of canoe is to be able to access navigation sites inaccessible from the road.

With your family or friends, we offer you a wide choice of rafting trips in the Verdon Gorges. Rafting is an inflatable boat that can hold up to 8 people on the same boat. It is sporty and friendly, to discover and share good moments. On each boat, a certified guide will accompany you and advise you for an optimal experience.

Above in the list, you will find some runs for sportsmen during the day, but also calmer runs that you can easily do with your children from 7 years old

To live an experience in the heart of the Gorges du Verdon, canyoning is an exceptional experience. Equipped with a neoprene wetsuit, a helmet and sneakers, you will discover the most beautiful canyons along the water. On the course, depending on the chosen level of difficulty, you can make jumps, abseiling, walking sections between the rocks

If you are looking for a more relaxing activity, we recommend you to opt for a water course or a water hike rather than for a more sportive canyoning.
