The "sport" or half day canoe trip in the Verdon Gorges starts from Castellane and takes you to the "Pont de Soleils" after 12 kilometers of rapids. Count 2:30 downhill and one hour more for briefing, shuttle and equipment.


This course is suitable for athletes who already have experience, even low canoe (lake, sea or river).

All along the route, you will alternate areas of rapids where you will have to paddle and direct your canoe and other quieter areas that will allow you to enjoy the beauty of the water, the height and verticality of the cliffs, etc.



In the middle of the course, you will cross the famous drop of the "Barre Saint Jean" ... some take then a nice shower (even a bath ...).
