The Verdon’s river flow is regulated by the EDF hydroelectric dams at Castillon and Chaudanne.

When they are closed, the Verdon flows less than 3m3/s, which enables us to swim in the Grand Canyon. (In July and August, this activity can be enjoyed every day, except on Tuesdays and Fridays).

Aqua-trekking involves you travelling downstream by mainly floating on your back (feet forward). This means that you can drift down in the waves without damaging the riverbed and without missing any of the wonderful scenery that the Verdon Grand Canyon has to offer.

Our guides will also teach you about the Verdon valley, its history and ecosystem.

We offer two legendary trips: the half-day ‘Couloir Samson’, or the full-day ‘Imbut’ trip, which is decidedly the most beautiful and more physically demanding of the two.
