Gorgeous gorges in the Verdon

Some of the best kayaking and canoeing

As return visitors to Provence will tell you, the Gorges of the Verdon River are very popular with families going kayaking and canoeing in the summer. 

For the best holiday snaps though, venture away from the usual tourist haunts and head to the ‘Sentier Martel’.

A favourite with adrenaline junkies, boasting tunnels, metal stairs and vantage points, this nine-mile trail takes you on a very memorable six-hour hike inside the Verdon Regional Park.
