Gorges du Verdon

The Gorges du Verdon

Called the “Grand Site de France”, the Gorges du Verdon is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful natural and tourist attractions in France. Frequented every year by thousands of visitors from around the world, the Gorges form indeed the most beautiful canyon in Europe.
Located within a hundred kilometres from the campsite Les Tournels, these Gorges are in places narrow and deep. The height of their slopes can sometimes reach 700 metres, while the width of the river that flows along the feet of these Gorges may not exceed 6 metres in some places.
From the campsite Les Tournels, you’ll be able to discover the Gorges through hiking trails, which wind along the summits, or alternatively from the river, whose waters have a characteristic colour, by hiring a canoe. Different routes are offered and used to reach the St Croix Lake, the fourth largest reservoir in France…
