Aqua Trekking Verdon Grand Canyon

This half day trip in the Verdon Gorge is a combination between two half day trips, the "Couloir Samson" and the "Trescaïre".


The first one is famous and start at the entrance of the Verdon Gorge. Here, cliffs are very high and narrow. Many jumps and rapids are available.


The second part is more opened, not really famous but so beautiful ! 


You will stay about 2,5 hours in the water. You will have to walk on the way back on the famous "Martel footpath", almost half an hour.
