Enjoy a half day rafting trip in the Gorges du Verdon to discover this exceptional environment and brave the white water of Verdon river
The "Classic" or half-day course in the Gorges du Verdon starts from Castellane.
You will ride about 12 kilometers to the Pont de Soleils (bridge that allows you to go from the left bank Gorges road to the right bank Gorges road).
Count more than 3h30 by adding to your descent of 2h15 / 2h30 the time of equipment, briefing and return by bus.
From the beginning you will have a breathtaking view of Castellane, its ramparts, its Roc and its chapel perched at nearly 200 meters high.
Along the way, the rapids alternate with the quieter areas. The guide makes you paddle when he needs speed, the rest of the time he is there to inform you, raise awareness and entertain!
In the middle of the route, you will cross the famous drop of the "La Barre Saint Jean" ...
Along the second part of the course, you will feel very small in the middle of the cliffs that gradually rise and give the tournis.
This course is suitable for all those who wish to mix a sports activity in the Gorges du Verdon and a breathtaking view of its cliffs.
