The gorge of Verdon is situated deep in the Provençal countryside. One of the most beautiful natural sites in the region, the gorge is a popular tourist spot with many different activities. A small road twists around the steep sides of the gorge, offering fantastic views from above of the crystal blue water. If you are renting a car whilst in the region, this is definitely one drive worth taking. For the more adventurous there is the chance to rent kayaks and meander your way up from the immense lake at the bottom, taking in the sights on your way. For those who want to keep their feet on dry land, hiking or even rock climbing are also very popular activities. If none of the above appeal, there is a lovely man made beach to relax on, and many areas to enjoy both a picnic and the fantastic view.
It is also worth mentioning that there are many campsites around the area, for those who wish to sample all that the lake and gorge have to offer at a more leisurely pace.
