Overview

Book
This stunning walking holiday through Europes most beautiful river canyon takes in some truly dramatic scenery and offers a colourful and genuine flavour of Provence. The gorge itself is around 25 kilometers long; the bottom 8m to 90m wide, while the rims are 200m to 1500m apart! The National Regional Park of Verdon was created in 1997 to protect an environment that has evolved over two million years and also prides itself in being labelled a UNESCO World Heritage Site as the largest geological reserve in Europe. Well explore the gorge and its charming surrounding area with a variety of beautiful walks!

This trip was even more than I'd hoped for! I loved that it was "inn to inn" so that I only had a day pack and got to sleep in a bed! The little villages we stayed in were pretty and interesting.
