 Aqua trekking  is a very popular activity within Verdon Gorges such that it is the only means possible to enter the interior of the Verdon Grand Canyon.

 

We offer you the possibility of 2 circuits.

 

  • The first being "Le Couloir Samson", situated at the entrance of the Verdon Grand Canyon. The level of difficulty is set at medium. It is accessible as of the age of 10. The activity take hold half of your day and allows you to jump as high of 6 meters. Around you, the cliffs take a height of more than 400 meters high...

 

  • The second circuit is the more physical one, it is named "Chaos de l'Imbut". With this circuit the activity is held entirely during the day. The walk to do it is approximately 40 minuts, the aqua trekking lasting 2 hours, a picnic then set on a pebble beach along the border of the Verdon, moving on to the afternoon aqua trek lasting 1.30 hour followed by an 1 hour walk back...quite physical but mostly sublime !

 

Within this trip, you confront the impact of erosion on the waters, an astonishing scenary to see. It is also possible to visit the caves along the route, some that date of millions of years ago. The "Styx", "Imbut" are mythical sites of Verdon which you could visit.

 

This circuit is available to all who are above the age of 14 and if you are relatively sportive.
