Located in the Alpes de Haute Provence, between Marseille, Nice, and Digne-Les-Bains, it is the longest canyon in Europe. Pure heaven for outdoor sports, the Verdon Gorge is more than 20 km long and can reach a depth of more than 700m.
At the bottom of this immense fault flows an emerald river: the Verdon, a real jewel of nature, wild and almost inaccessible. Between the limestone cliffs, you will have the opportunity to admire the very diverse fauna and flora of the Verdon Regional Nature Park.
