Verdon Gorge, France

The stunning Verdon Gorge is a river canyon in the southeastern section of France. The gorge is home to the Verdon River, known for its starling turquoise waters. The Verdon Gorge is a limestone canyon over 15 miles (25 kilometers) long and up to 2,297 feet (700 meters) deep. The canyon is a popular rock climbing, kayaking, hiking, and sight-seeing destination. Either side of Verdon Gorge is easily accessed, and a car ride around the rim is a lovely way to spend a day. The largest nearby towns with the most services and accommodations are Grasse and Aix-en-Provence, with several other smaller towns in the vicinity.

  4. If anyone has ever been here and could give me advice on where to stay, who to talk to about running the river on a SUP please get a hold of me. Came across the gorge a few days ago and now on a mission to go down-most likely with a guide or someone who knows this well.
    Thx…
