Aqua-trekking in the "Gorges du Verdon"


You will be provided with isothermal wet-suits (jacket, overalls & socks) all of which will help you float and of course, a helmet.

In groups of a maximum of 8 people, you will be accompanied by a state qualified guide who will teach you how to direct yourself safely down the rapids on your back.

Our guides will also be able to teach you all about the Verdon valley and all its history and ecosystem.

Aqua-trekking of "Couloir Samson" : 40/pers

After a short walk of 5 minutes to reach the Canyons river-bed, this 2 hour activity will take you through one of the narrowest sections of the verdon canyon giving you the perfect opportunity to discover the Samson Corridor, the ‘baume aux pigeons’ and the first labyrinth up close.

The walk back will be through the tunnels of the ‘sentier martel’ and should last no longer than 15 minutes. 

This course is suitable for children from the age of 10 years old, required that they can swim.


Aqua-trekking of "L'Imbut" : 70/pers

Prepare yourself for a once in a lifetime experience in a unique and altogether magical environment.

From Castellane, it will take us 45 minutes to drive to the left-hand side of the Verdon Canyon to the ‘Cavaliers’, where we will begin the activity.

It will take us a further half an hour’s walk to reach the river from the road – this four hour activity will take you through the most spectacular areas of the Verdon Grand Canyon: the ‘Estelier’, the ‘Styx’, the under-ground section of the ‘Imbut’ (where the more daring of the group can attempt some impressive jumps.)

After a while, we will stop for lunch to make the most of the sun and our incredible surroundings.

Towards the end of the after-noon, we will need about an hour to climb out of the canyon using the Vidal footpath.

This physical day of activity will surely be filled with emotions and we will show you just how much we enjoy showing off this beautiful region.

We also offerotherwhite water activitieslike kayaking in the "Gorges du Verdon", Rafting from Castellane, or canyoning in the "Alpes Maritimes".
