The most impressive stretch of the Gorges du Verdon lies between the towns of Castellane and Moustiers-Sainte-Marie. This is the section where the Verdon cuts through limestone and the gorge is 700 m deep.
The Gorges du Verdon is a popular attraction in France and offers numerous opportunities for people who love to hike and kayak. From Moustiers-Ste-Marie or Lac-Ste-Croix visitors can drive along the North Rim or the South Rim. The North Rim goes through Pont de Soleils, La Palud-sur-Verdon and Rougon. The South Rim runs through Aiguines, Trigance and the Pont de Soleils. Both these routes have their own highlights and sceneries.
At the termination point of the canyon, the Verdon flows into a beautiful artificial lake of Sainte-Croix-du-Verdon. The Gorges du Verdon is an excellent destination for rock climbers. There are around 1500 routes where you can enjoy climbing along limestone rocks. The destination is also good for fly fishing, canoeing, paragliding and rafting.
