The Grand Canyon of the Verdon, just for you? It's possible in low season, the ideal time to explore this wonder of nature far from the hustle and bustle.

Nature and great outdoors lovers will be delighted by this river trekking tour! Fun, aquatic, refreshing, the exploration of the Couloir Samson will not leave you indifferent. This is a wonderful opportunity to discover this area, which is usually not accessible by boat. We will progress along the gorges by swimming and floating. You will have several occasions to jump, but none are mandatory.

Not only is the descent very fun, but you will also enjoy unique and sensational views!
