If you are already enthused about river trekking, it is time to do two tours in one!

We cross the end of the gorges and the beginning of the Grand Canyon of Verdon, on a tour that will blow your mind. During the first section, the gorges are very open and you can jump into large basins of water where small rapids flow. In the second part, the cliffs are much tighter and more vertiginous, accompanied by more rapids and rocks.

Overall, an unforgettable experience!

Unlike canyoning, a river trekking descent does not include any abseiling passage.

Tour programme
- Preparation:
We meet at our base in Castellane, where you will be equipped. Then you will receive a briefing by your guide, during which he gives you information about your safety and the characteristics of the course. Now that you are ready to challenge the white water, we take a bus that takes us to the activity (20 min).
- Tour:
The circuit is a combination of the "Tusset Bridge" and "Samson Corridor" courses. On the first, the rapids and large water basins alternate, and we will have a superb view over the entrance to the Grand Canyon, where we'll later take a picnic break. The second is one of the narrowest and most vertiginous parts of the canyon, where the descents of rapids and jumps follow one another.
- Return:
After our tour, you will be transported back to our base.

Super beautiful gorge and our guide Valentin was great and could explain everything to us in English. The drive to the starting point was also an experience.

It was an absolute top experience !!!!! .... unfortunately it had rained for us the day before so the water was not clear but rather brown but that didn't matter, on the contrary, the jumps were an extra thrill because you Didn't see where to jump ... the guide was great, he knew every single stone was in the water and was always in a good mood and was always ready to have fun ... all in all, very, very recommendable
